Faculty & Course Certifications

Faculty Certification

  1. Faculty designing online courses must be certified through appropriate KSU pathways (RCHSS ODE Build a Web Course Workshop or DLI Online Course Design Workshop—faculty who were certified to teach under QM are grandfathered in).  
  2. Faculty teaching hybrid courses must be certified through the RCHSS ODE Building and Teaching Hybrids (BATH) workshop or the Build a Web Course Workshop.
  3. Faculty facilitating principal courses must be certified through the asynchronous online RCHSS ODE Principal Course Instructor Training or the DLI Online Course Facilitation Program.
  4. Faculty new to KSU who have been certified in online pedagogy through a previous institution may ask their chair/director to submit an exemption form for registration as certified at KSU. The ODE will review the form for exemption.

The following courses are currently certified according to the standards set by the Radow College of Humanities and Social Sciences.
