Teaching Online Certification Course 

Are you planning to teach online at Ship for the first time? Be sure to complete the required Teaching Online Certification Course (TOCC), if you haven’t already done so.  TOCC is a five week fully online training.  The next session is scheduled to begin on February 12, 2015 and end on March 22, 2015.  Faculty scheduled to teach online for the first time in Spring 2015 or Summer 2015 will be given first preference for a limited number of seats in the training course.

To register for this training, please email idwt@ship.edu.

About the Course

TOCC has been developed collaboratively between Shippensburg, Clarion, Kutztown, Lock Haven, and California Universities. Successful completion of this course satisfies Article 42 C.2. of the collective bargaining agreement.  Faculty who have not previously taught an online course (80% or more online) at Ship must complete TOCC.  This includes faculty who have taught online at other Universities.  This 5-week totally online course provides instructors with a student’s perspective, guidance on designing an online course, and instructions for using the various D2L tools. This is not a self-paced course.  Participants will be required to read course materials, participate in weekly discussion boards, collaborate in a group project, and develop content relevant to their own online course. In order to complete the activities and course development exercises, participants must have a course they are scheduled (or planning) to teach online within the next year.  The time commitment will be approximately 10 hours/week depending on your familiarity with D2L.  We hope that all participants will look at this experience as positive and beneficial to successfully developing their online course.
