The Certificate in Online and Open Learning (COOL) is a flexible
post-graduate program offered by the Office of Open Learning to
help prepare instructors for designing, developing, teaching and
evaluating high quality online, open, hybrid, and
technology-enhanced, courses and programs. The program is designed
with a high level of flexibility for busy academics and graduate
students, allowing them to tailor their learning to their own
interests and needs, as well as recognising that there are many
different ways to gain knowledge and skills. How long does it take?
The program is designed so that it could be completed within one
year. We understand that life is messy though, and most people will
likely take up to two years to complete. What is the time
commitment? The COOL is a post-graduate program that involves
independent study, synchronous and asynchronous learning
opportunities, engagement with literature, creative activities,
mentoring, and development of an ePortfolio at the program level.
Learners can expect to commit 5-10 hours per week to the program,
depending on their personalised learning pathway.
At this time, there are no upcoming events in "Certificate in Online and Open Learning (COOL) ".
Please join us for an informal discussion and community on the
practices of designing and teaching in a technology-enhanced
environment. These are monthly gatherings of colleagues in the
planning, building and teaching stages of technology-enhanced
courses- come learn something new, or get inspired to think outside
the classroom! Our Community of Practice will meet once a month
(with coffee!), we encourage you to register for each offering, and
invite you to bring a colleague along! Each month, an Open Learning
team member or a friend from campus (or beyond!) will offer a brief
summary of a new tool or practice that may be useful in your
teaching practice. We encourage you to bring what you are working
on, any challenges you're conquering, and any successes you've had
with teaching in a technology-enhanced way.
