DE certification at GCC

Register for the @ONE DE Certification Course

GCC is proud to offer Faculty free, in-house, DE Certification in partnership with the @ONE Teach-the-Teacher Training Program.

Before you register for this fantastic Introduction to Online Teaching and Learning (IOTL) course, you might want to consider that this is not an “Introduction on how to use Canvas”. We will not be getting into the nitty-gritty of creating assignments, modifying quizzes, editing profiles, setting-up discussions, etc. in this course. The IOTL course is an overview of effective principles of teaching and learning online (theory focused).

So, I highly recommend the FREE Self-Paced "Introduction to Teaching with Canvas" course through @ONE. For fast answers or to broaden your Canvas knowledge, this is a great course that should be completed before (or during) the IOTL course if your Canvas knowledge is limited. You will have a much better experience in the IOTL course if you complete this free self-paced Canvas course through @ONE first! 

IOTL - REGISTER HERE!

Note: Once registered, you will receive a Welcome Letter to your GCC email account from the course @ONE DE Faculty Trainer 2-5 days before the course begins letting you know how to log into your Canvas IOTL course. 

The 4-week, fully online, “Introduction to Online Teaching and Learning” (IOTL) course will run several times each semester during the year.

Course Description:

Great teaching can happen anywhere, but teaching online requires different skills, strategies, and tools than in a traditional face-to-face classroom. In this 4-week course, you will gain proficiency in the unique qualities and perspectives of masterful online teaching, including powerful ways to support the success of online students, how to lay a foundation for a productive learning community, and infusing your course with your distinctive presence. We'll walk you through the pertinent federal, state, and local regulations impacting online teaching, and set you on a path to designing success for you and your students!

Outcomes - by the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Identify and discuss federal and state regulations that impact online course policy and practice;
  • Identify local support for online teachers and learners;
  • Design introductory activities that support an online learning community;
  • Develop clear and supportive online course policies.
