Professional Development

We believe that social connections and mentorship is at the heart of positive and successful teaching and learning experiences. Come and join our learning community.

  • EduPass Certification Program

    AI&e optional certification program designed to acknowledge and award faculty commitment to ongoing professional development and their desire to design, develop and deploy quality online courses that promote student success.

    The EduPass certification program is AI&e’s tool to recognize the investment, both in time commitment and workload, that faculty take on to achieve the goal of creating a successful and quality online course. This is achieved through participating in faculty professional development opportunities and using newly developed skills to actively design, build, develop and deploy their courses. Part of the program also asks faculty to share their work with the community at large through eWolf ePortfolios.

    The training is provided in multiple formats: synchronous, through workshops, conference opportunities, and one-on-one consultations, or asynchronous, with online course design materials and academic technology tutorials found online at EduPass: A Journey to Online Teaching & Learning. To earn a credential badge faculty submit artifacts that showcase the process, final design choice and reflection through an ePortfolio.

    All UAA faculty have who have participated in current or past training events and have completed an online or hybrid course design are eligible to submit courses to be reviewed toward certification. To request joining the EduPass community fill out this information form.
