2018-2019 Graduate Catalog

Online Teaching and Learning Graduate Certificate

The 15-credit hour graduate certificate in online teaching and learning is intended for currently admitted graduate students seeking to develop skills necessary for designing, developing, and teaching online courses in various contexts such as higher education, corporate, K-12 education, and military settings. All courses in this graduate certificate program are delivered online through Distance Education. Students currently enrolled in many of the graduate programs on our campus are seeking to gain experience designing, developing, and teaching online courses. A certificate in online teaching and learning will offer students a way to group the courses they are already taking so that they can present their skills to future employers in a way that is easily recognized. This certificate will also further prepare students to be able to apply their skills and practical experiences they gain from our courses in future development of online courses. Certificate candidates must currently be admitted to a graduate program at the university or hold a terminal degree and be admitted to the graduate school. All 15 credit hours of coursework must be completed at the University of Tennessee within five years of applying for a certificate. A 3.5 GPA must be earned across all certificate courses. All required courses are listed below.


*Students who can demonstrate advanced skills that meet or exceed the learning objectives of IT 573  may replace the course with another as advised.
