Earn Your Online Teaching Certificate with QM or ACUE this Winter

Earlier this academic year, we announced that thanks to funding from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds (HEERF), Thomas Jefferson University was offering faculty the chance to earn their Online Teaching Certificate.

If you are an instructor interested in improving your online teaching skills, we encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity this winter. Self-select asynchronous micro-courses from one of two providers—Quality Matters (QM) or the Association of College and University Educators (ACUE). Both programs offer evidence-based practices and strategies that will empower you to design impactful online courses and ensure student success today and in the future.

Check out the winter 2022 schedules below and read our earlier announcement to learn about which program is right for you, read program descriptions, and to sign up.
