The Summer 2018 Course in College Teaching is a free, non-credit, entirely online course beginning June 4 and ending July 22. It is open to full-time PSU faculty of any rank/status.

This six-week, largely asynchronous, online course provides an opportunity for faculty from all disciplines to share ideas and strategies for successful teaching. The course will include discussion and practice based on information drawn from teaching and learning literature, as well as from the experiences of individual participants, allowing participants to explore successful teaching and learning as a collaborative group.

In order to earn the Certificate of Completion participants must:

  • Attend two of three synchronous Zoom sessions: June 7, June 28, and July 12 from 1 – 3 p.m;
  • Participate in all online activities and in five of the six weekly discussions;
  • Successfully complete three certificate assignments (a syllabus, a learning activity, and a teaching philosophy)

Space is very limited and registration is open until May 11, 2018. Contact Mary Ann Tobin at or Wideline Seraphin at with questions.

Graduate students and post-docs may be accepted only if space is available, and must have recent independent teaching experience.
