Certificates Program

The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Certificates program is offered to support instructors as they integrate technologies into their courses to improve instruction and provide students with highly engaging learning experiences as well as flexible scheduling.

This certificate ensures the quality of online course offerings at TAMU-CC and supports the continuity of learning in case of a campus closure. It is a benefit and requisite for online course delivery.

The objectives of this program are to:

  • Improve and increase opportunities for faculty professional development and ongoing support for effective teaching in online courses.
  • Support TAMU-CC’s strategic plan by ensuring the quality of online courses, along with increasing our potential for continuity of learning in the event of an evacuation.
  • Ensure that TAMU-CC meets Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) and Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) standards for distance education by providing faculty support services related to distance education and appropriate development for faculty who teach in online programs.

The Best Practices in Online Instruction workshop is a six-week program designed to help you explore digital strategies and technology available at TAMU-CC to transform your online class into a high-quality, interactive, and unique experience for your students. This workshop satisfies the training requirement included in the new faculty contract.

Registration is now open for the next session, scheduled to take place March 20th through April 30th, 2020. A reminder will be sent out one week before the start of the workshop.
