Dr. Pat Miller Completes Certification for Learning at a Distance Program
Dr. Pat Bederman Miller, professor in the division of natural science and mathematics, recently became the first Keystone faculty member to complete the Certification for Learning at a Distance program.
The Certification for Learning at a Distance encourages faculty members to strengthen their technological and teaching skills to better prepare them for distance learning. Participants demonstrate proficiency in Blackboard, Keystone’s web-based course management system, and Adobe Connect, an online collaboration tool. Participants must also complete the Best Practices for Online Learning workshop that focuses on course design for online delivery.
After Keystone received formal approval by the Middle States Commission to offer distance education program in fall 2009, the program was developed to create a pool of online-ready instructors to teach current and newly proposed online courses. The certification program was implemented in early spring 2010.
