A Variety of Training Resources
Workshops offered by the Online Learning Consortium (OLC) run approximately 9-16 days and are asynchronous (self-paced). Two live sessions are offered and recorded for each workshop. Upon completion, participants will receive a Certificate of Completion from OLC.
Faculty who have taught online for less than 3 years are encouraged to take New to Online: The Essentials and New to Online: Putting Your Content Online. The full list of workshops includes 40+ workshops.
ODL sponsors these workshops on a competitive basis. (Please note: we do not sponsor workshops for the OLC Online Teaching Certificates or Mastery Series.)
