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.

Catch the Wave: Explore MiraCosta’s Professional Development Resources for Online Educators from Program for Online Teaching on Vimeo.

POT workshop on 16 August 2011 with Jim Sullivan. From the Program for Online Teaching’s home page to MiraCosta’s Blackboard training workshops and Pedagogy First (a blog where MiraCosta faculty share tools and reflect on their online teaching) MiraCosta has a strong set of resources for developing online teaching skils while earning FLEX credit. This workshop will introduce you to those resources and give you some time to explore them.
