St. John’s University’s Office of Online Learning and Services
offers formal training for faculty to teach Online Learning courses
at the University. Successful completion of the “Online
Learning Pedagogy I” course is the primary method for receiving
certification to teach any of the University’s fully online or
mixed mode courses. Consult your chair before registering for
this course to confirm that your department will schedule you to
teach online or mixed mode in the near future. Please note, the
Office of Online Learning and Services does not make decisions
regarding faculty appointments.
Three to four hours per week of online participation is required
for six weeks to complete the certification. Upon successful
completion of the course and after teaching a fully online course
with assistance from a Online Learning mentor, the university will
provide a one-time stipend of $1,000 to the participant.
Participation in this course is asynchronous which means that there
will be no face-to-face sessions or required date and or times when
you will need to be ‘logged-in’ to the online course. You can
participate at days and times that are convenient for your
schedule, however please note that all course assignment deadlines
as posted in the syllabus must be met. Participants
enrolling in this course must meet rudimentary computer proficiency
skills such as logging in, cutting and pasting text using word
processing software and attaching documents to e-mails.
Prior course participants who did not finish are encouraged to
re-enroll. Summer session dates are being determined and will
be posted shortly, so please check back. When dates are
posted, complete this registration
form in its entirety. If you need additional information,
please contact Elizabeth Alexander at (718) 990-2353.
