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.

Instructors can earn their certificates in a number of ways. We offer a week-long workshop series several times a year. We deliver the series in Face-to-Face workshops across the Fall semester and again across the Spring semester.

December 17-18, 2018 - Workshops

And, we deliver the program as an intensive online course. We will also offer the program on demand for a big enough group. Instructors do not have to commit to learning in just one of the above ways. Rather they can flexibly combine the above offerings in any way to ultimately receive credit for the entire program. We welcome instructors in any single workshop at any time.

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 HECB and SACS standards for distance education by providing faculty support services related to distance education and appropriate development for faculty who teach in online programs.
