Graduates of this certificate will develop their ability to increase student engagement, foster collaboration, and create community through high quality online instruction.

Courses include, Contexts of Online Learning, and Gamification and Engaged Learning.

The Adult and Higher Education Instructor Post-Diploma Certificate is designed to prepare educators for teaching in a variety of settings.
