Qualifications to Teach Distance Education Courses
It is essential that the faculty who teach distance education courses are proficient in their subject area, skilled with technology, and are also specifically prepared for the unique challenges of teaching in a dynamic online environment.
Effective September 1, 2017 – Instructors who want to design, develop, and deliver an online/hybrid course must complete IDT G20 or IDT G31.
Instructors who have prior experience teaching an online or hybrid course may request permission to waive this requirement by completing the IDT G20 Waiver Application.
ETC 230 Expiration
ETC 230 hasn’t been offered since early 2009. Since then, the online learning landscape has changed significantly. The Vice President of Academic Affairs and Deans of Instruction have agreed that effective January 1, 2015 – ETC230 will no longer be accepted as a qualifier to teach an online or hybrid course.
