You know you’ve got teaching ideas you’d like to try– we’ll provide the coffee and lunch as we learn about teaching with technology together. The NMC teachingSOLUTIONS professional development program will be offered again this Spring and Summer. The program is designed to help instructors more effectively use technology, specifically Moodle, in their teaching. Completion of the program and submitting a capstone project results in the NMC Online Teaching Certificate enabling instructors to teach online courses at NMC.
The redesigned and refreshed teachingSOLUTIONS program is scheduled for two delivery methods this summer with each taking approximately 30 – 35 hours to complete. We will hold a week long boot camp style session and a separate, your-paced, online version. Adjuncts completing the program and a capstone project are eligible for a $400 stipend.
