Certification to teach blended & online courses

Our accreditation stipulates that all faculty must undergo proper training prior to teaching their first non-face-to-face course at APU. To that end, ITT offers two different certifications: teaching online (two parts) and teaching blended. These self-paced certification courses orient faculty to APU's philosophy and approach to online and blended pedagogy. Specifically, these courses offer faculty technical training on the effective use of Canvas (APU's new learning management system) and pedagogical training on how to integrate the Christian faith in blended and online courses. It is recommended that faculty enroll and complete the relevant certification the semester prior to when they start teaching. Email ittsupport@apu.edu if you have any questions.
