Online Teaching Certification Program

I met Ms. Cruz when I agreed to teach an online employment law course and enrolled in the University’s mandatory online course, which trained faculty members in the best practices of delivering instruction in this format. Ms. Cruz served as the instructor for this course that she developed, and also assisted me in developing my course. Her course was extremely well-designed, helpful and encouraged me to consider modifying my other “live” courses into a hybrid format using the Canvas learning system. All my interactions (electronic and in-person) were professional and focused on me understanding the material presented and developing a course that excelled at assisting my students.  I walked into teaching an online course with some trepidation and became a convert, largely due to the excellent guidance given me by Ms. Cruz.
