Online Judaic Studies Consortium (OJSC) offers teachers high-quality professional development opportunities in both facilitating and creating online courses. Each teacher participates in Online Teaching Methodologies (OTM), a graduate-level online course that focuses on teaching strategies for building community, encouraging discussions, and providing insightful feedback in an online classroom.
Teachers work collaboratively with one another and our dynamic course instructors. Once teachers have developed a foundational knowledge of the pedagogy of online learning, they may opt to continue their training with a focus on the course development process. This training prepares teachers to then partner with experienced online instructional designers to build a course that meets the high standards of the OJSC.
"Online Teaching Methodologies gave me strategies for how to teach online and create a more student-centered face to face class."
