The Provost has approved the following list of professional development for UA-PTC faculty who wish to be eligible to teach a third overload. The training must be completed prior to taking on the additional overload. Please note that these courses last six to nine weeks and have varying start dates. The Coursera options are MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), and are offered according to the schedule.
Approved Courses from coursera.org
Getting Results: A Professional Development Course for Community College Educators
In addition to the MOOCs listed above, we will soon have another option that we will be able to run as needed. It will be comparable to the Coursera, but the focus is specifically on community college teaching. It will run for six or seven weeks and include discussion questions and assignments.
Once you have completed one of the approved courses, send a copy of your certificate or proof of successful completion to your chair, your dean, and Jayne Pyle, Director of the Professional Development Institute ([email protected]). Your employee file will be updated to reflect that you have completed the requirements for teaching a third overload.
Certificate/Proof of Completion
Please note that, depending on the course you select, you may be offered a chance to pay for a verified certificate. This is not a requirement for our needs. We just need proof that you successfully completed the course.
