Faculty CertificationFaculty have three options for certification in online teaching at UMKC
The best way for faculty members to become certified online instructors at UMKC is to attend one of our one-week intensive courses in person.
Another route to certification for faculty members is to enroll in a 4-week asynchronous online course taught by an instructional designer.
Become certified on your time with the self-paced course, which requires demonstrating mastery of the core concepts of online teaching.
Online Course Certification
Instructors may request for the UMKC Online Instructional Design team to conduct a review of an online course using the Certification Checklist. Courses meeting each element of the Certification Checklist will be certified for online instruction at UMKC.
