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.

Fall workshops/discussions

Join us for two Friday afternoon workshops/discussions this fall:

Sept 13 2-3:20pm classroom: POT workshop: student engagement online (OC3515)

This time of the semester, some students are starting to fade from our online sections. Despite the traditionally higher drop rate for online classes, there are ways to help those who are losing interest, getting lost, or just “forgetting” to attend. Come discuss what factors can help keep students engaged in online classes. Please bring your own ideas for discussion – successes, challenges, and things you’re trying.

Oct 11 2-3:20 pm lab: POT workshop: Skills and tools for online instructors (OC3515)

At this workshop, we’ll demo some free internet tools that can be used for online classes, and talk about ways in which we can learn new skills through networking.
