Registration is now open for spring Online Teaching Essentials (OTE), an opportunity to expand your teaching skill set and become certified to teach online and hybrid courses at St. John’s University. OTE will be offered from Monday, March 14, through Sunday, April 10. Please register here.
OTE is a four-week, asynchronous online course that addresses the design and teaching of online and hybrid courses. You work in a hands-on environment designed to provide an authentic online student experience while developing your teaching skills. It is facilitated by St. John’s faculty with considerable online teaching experience.You can expect to spend between eight to 10 hours per week in the course, so please plan accordingly. We strongly encourage you to complete OTE at least one semester in advance of your first hybrid or online course offering.
Successful completion of OTE is the primary method to be eligible to teach any of the University’s fully asynchronous online or hybrid courses. If you have any questions, please contact Ian M.
