Penn State Responds to Surge of Interest in Skills-Based Online Teaching Certificate - EdSurge

Last fall Pennsylvania State University’s World Campus launched a small, free skills-focused certificate program meant to help 30 graduate students develop online teaching abilities—but 350 actually showed up, and now the university plans to shake up its professional development to reflect the swell of interest. Laurence Boggess, director of faculty development for the World Campus, told Inside Higher Ed he believes this reflects a larger shift: “These graduate students who are about to go off and be the professors of the future, they get it. They understand that they’re going to be teaching online at some point, and they understand that online education—for better or worse—is not going anywhere.” https://www.edsurge.com/news/2016-05-03-penn-state-responds-to-surge-of-interest-in-skills-based-online-teaching-certificate
