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 Cert Class and First Fridays coming up! avatar

POT Online Teaching Certificate Class at Pedagogy First!

Class begins September 1 for a free, open, online experience in learning to teach online.  Contact Lisa during the summer if you’d like to join – you will be starting your own blog and following a syllabus that runs 12 weeks in fall and 12 weeks and spring. Those who complete the tasks may earn a POT Online Teaching certificate and badge.

See the 2011-12 class for the kind of experience to expect. The new class website will open this summer.

POT First Fridays at Oceanside 4804

Come and discuss your online teaching adventures with fellow faculty members.  Individuals with no, little, some, and a lot of online teaching experience are all welcome.  Each First Friday will focus on what the group wants to discuss, however, prompts will also be provided to start the discussion.  Questions are welcome, too!
