Resolution Approving the Proposed Certificate in Online Learning and Teaching

Whereas there is a current need to help the Hawaii Department of Education (DOE) to develop a program to support their teachers who are involved in the virtual high school program initiated in 2008; and

Whereas the DOE’s goal is to make it possible for all DOE teachers to obtain additional training in e-learning; and

Whereas the College of Education’s Department of Educational Technology has recently developed three new graduate level courses in support of e-learning; and

Whereas a program of five existing courses is now available in this area, and no increase in cost will be incurred by this e-learning curriculum where enrollment of additional students is expected to exceed the expenses to the College; and

Whereas the need for online teaching extends beyond Oahu to the neighbor islands to reach underserved populations, including Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders;

Therefore be it resolved that the Manoa Faculty Senate approves the creation of a Graduate Certificate in Online Learning and Teaching (COLT) in the College of Education, University of Hawai’i at Manoa.
