We are the Program for Online Teaching, a group of volunteer faculty helping other faculty teach better online.

Our focus is on pedagogy as the guiding force for using technologies for teaching.

Many of us are from MiraCosta College in Oceanside, California. MiraCostans may access the Teaching/Technology Innovations Center for technical help, resources, news and more.

POT All-Day Workshop: Strategies and Tools for Online Teaching

Tuesday, August 14
9:30 am – 3:50 pm, lunch included
Flex time: 6.5 hours
Limit enrollment: 35 participants
Cost: $20/person due by Monday, August 13, includes lunch (check payable to MCC Academic Senate, with PDP on memo line, sent to Debby Adler at MS #8C)

Instructors of all levels and styles are welcome to join us for an all-day exploration of the strategies and tools that can be effectively used for online, hybrid or on-site classes that use web technologies. Beginning with developing good course design through individual pedagogy, participants will work hands-on with a selection of proven teaching tools and explore how they can be used to realize instructional goals.  If you have attended an all-day POT workshop in the past, there will be some new additions this year.

Please bring your laptop computer or smart phone if you have one.

Participants will receive 6.5 flex hours for participating (attendance of less than 6.5 hours may be recorded on the sign-in sheet).
