Online Teaching & Learning Technologies - Graduate Certificate (Online)

The Online Teaching and Learning Graduate Certificate (OTLGC) is fully online certificate for professionals in business, government, education, or other settings who want to develop their knowledge and skills in online teaching and learning. Prime candidates for the OTLGC program are individuals with a need to explore online teaching and learning techniques and the willingness to engage in collaborative learning projects.

The OTLGC utilizes technology-based environments to actively engage students in designing formal educational projects that meet professional objectives. The four courses (3-credits each) are sequences to provide an intense immersion in a dynamic online environment.

Current NMSU graduate students can take the OTLGC program. These graduate students should consult with their graduate advisor before starting the OTLGC program. If completing a OTLGC concurrently with another graduate degree, students must apply for graduation at the same time for both the OTLGC and their other graduate degree.
