Qualified Online Faculty

Online Education, a division of the Office for the Advancement of Teaching & Learning offers Online Pedagogy Competency courses (OP) each semester and a self-paced Basic Sakai Training. In December of 2013, our Basic Sakai Competency course became a prerequisite for OP. Currently, 107 faculty members have completed the Sakai training course.

Faculty also have the option of testing out of our training by completing a course review through Quality Matters. For more information, please go to our Quality Matters Peer Review Process page.

Below you will find a list of graduates from OP parts 1 and 2 listed by college. A “1” next to a name indicates they completed training in online pedagogy and are prepared to teach a course online. A “2” next to their name indicates they completed training in both pedagogy and course design and are able to design and teach online courses.
