The WMU Eteaching endorsement program is designed to provide WMU instructors with the knowledge, skills, and ability to effectively design, develop, and manage teaching and learning experiences facilitated through the use of a variety of Elearning technologies and methodologies. This five-week, hands-on program will introduce and be based on contemporary Elearning best practices, instructional design techniques, methods for ensuring quality, multi-modal/sensory learning object development, and accessibility considerations and compliance. Participants will develop, at a minimum, a web enhanced course that can be utilized in support of face-to-face instruction.
The Eteaching Endorsement Program is delivered in a hybrid format with instructional sessions conducted both online and face-to-face. Participants are expected to actively participate in lessons, discussions, and prepare course materials with the assistance of the Online Education team. Participants should bring a copy of their course syllabus and any course materials that have been prepared for face-to-face delivery.
The Eteaching Endorsement Program is available to all WMU instructors interested in exploring or pursuing the use of Elearning and instructional technologies that support or facilitate Elearning. Department Chairs, program coordinators, Deans, and other academic support personnel are also welcome.
Due to the intensive and hands-on nature of this program, session capacity is currently limited to 15 participants. Additional sessions will be scheduled when demand requires it.
Participants who successfully complete the program will receive a certificate of completion. Participants are not compensated for participating in or completing the program.
