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.

About POT
About POT avatar

Putting the “prof” back in professional development….Founded in 2005, the Program for Online Teaching (POT) is a volunteer faculty professional development group. Faculty propose, lead, and attend flex activities relating to our core objective of excellence in online education. As a community of practice, we mentor colleagues, share resources and ideas, and host collaborative projects and classes. Involvement is open to interested faculty at all academic institutions.

How can you become involved?

If you are at MiraCosta College:

1) propose and present a flex workshop that fits with POT.
2) participate in a POT open online class or experience.
3) engage in dialogue about online teaching in the POT Facebook group.
4) Attend POT workshops through flex
5) Help us collect good resources by joining the MCC POT Diigo group: http://groups.diigo.com/group/mccpot

If you are at another college or location:

1) feel free to make use of any resources at our website
2) engage in dialogue about online teaching in the POT Facebook group.
3) Help us collect good resources by joining the MCC POT Diigo group: http://groups.diigo.com/group/mccpot
