Online Teaching Certification Program (OTCP)

This program exists to prepare instructors to meet the qualification requirements for online teaching at COS per COSTA and COSAFA master agreements.  The OTCP is a program that covers regulations and pedagogical approaches related to online teaching. Developed under the direction of the COS Academic Senate sub-committee, Distance Education at COS (DECOS), the OTCP has recently been revised based on the new online teaching standards developed by the Online Education Initiative (OEI) and endorsed by the COS Academic Senate as a teaching resource. To see full lists of Online Teaching Certified Faculty, visit the Human Resources: Employee Resources webpage and select Faculty Seniority Lists.​​​
