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.

Welcome to the POT website (we have moved to pedagogyfirst.org/pot). If you’ve been here before, you might be looking for our resources. They are still here, under the “Resources” and “Tutorials” menus above. 

From March-June 2015, this website hosted Pedagogy First!, featuring a number of authors writing posts about teaching using technology. We featured posts by experienced online instructors, those using technology in their classrooms, and leaders in the field. You can read all the posts here

Beginning July 2015, we will continue to publish posts focused on online pedagogy.

Subscribing to our site will bring these posts directly to your email.
