Specialized Training and Workshops

The Online Teaching Certification (OTC) takes a deep dive into developing, building, and teaching a fully online course. You will take part in an eight week course where you will get the opportunity to get the student perspective of an online course while also building your own course. You will be introduced to fundamental course design practices as well as tools that help with establishing consistent communication, engaging course content, and a strong online learning community.

Classroom Support

Learning Commons Student Learning Assistants (SLAs) primarily support student learning in a designated course and/or campus program. SLAs are meant to aid in the learning process of students--not direct it--and support faculty members and students in achieving their desired learning outcomes. This support does not replace faculty members’ role in the classroom, but instead, supplements their efforts so students receive additional support both inside and outside of the classroom. Similar to supplemental instruction, SLAs may lead group tutoring/study sessions with students outside of the classroom, and inside of the classroom SLAs may assist with technology support, small-group discussions, and offering one-on-one support for students. 

Faculty Applications for SLA(s) for Spring 2022 are now being accepted!

The deadline to submit requests for Spring 2022 Student Learning Assistant(s) is Monday, January 3, 2022 by 5pm, but requests will be evaluated on a rolling basis. Please note that this deadline ensures we are able to prepare & equip the SLA to support your class at the beginning of the semester; late applications may prevent SLA(s) from being in attendance by the start of the semester. 

*Submitting a request does not guarantee SLA placement. Requests will be evaluated based on strength of application and capacity of the ASC department.

Sample Materials

A great way to re-envision what we do in our own classes is to see what others have done in theirs. Here are some samples of different courses, syllabi and assignments.
