Due to the global impact of COVID-19, many educational institutions are mobilizing to quickly move course offerings online. This has created a need for post-secondary faculty and administration to receive online pedagogy training to provide students with quality online learning experiences that best suit the course or topic. It also opens up opportunities to offer content to learners overseas who would not normally have access to these courses—those who require training on how to internationalize online practices, curriculum and teaching. 

Responding to this need, we now offer a Professional Development Certificate (PDC) in Online Pedagogy and Internationalization that will be foundational and overarching. Topics can include:

  • Adapting curriculum for online environments
  • Framework and process for internationalization
  • Asynchronous and synchronous learning
  • The "flipped classroom"
  • Accessibility
  • Student-centred learning
  • Assessment and evaluation
  • Receiving and applying feedback 

​This course will be offered entirely online and can be customized to meet the needs of the interested participants. For more information, please contact International Education Program Coordinator Misty Cozac at tefl@uvic.ca.
