Delivered by leading experts in the field.

Online Teaching Academy represents a certified professional development programme that will provide participants with the theoretical and practical tools required to design an effective online or blended learning experience based on sound learning-design principles, best practices and trends.

Participants will understand the value and opportunities of an online environment and learn how to become effective online instructors. This represents a significant opportunity for early-stage online teachers or those interested in orientating themselves in the online learning space who are looking to keep up with the rapidly-evolving market and explore current trends and innovations.

  • Learning design professionals with a basic knowledge of online learning design who are interested in understanding the wider landscape of teaching online at a higher education institution and updating and increasing their level of understanding.

Participants that complete all mandatory parts of the course will be declared EFMD Certified Online Facilitators.
