The Online Teaching Endorsement at Metro RESA is a GaPSC approved preparation program that provides approved candidates with the coursework and related field experience required to add the Online Teaching Endorsement to a current standard Georgia Professional Certificate. The Online Teaching Endorsement classes will consist of K-12 educators who have a desire to strengthen their online instructional knowledge, skills, and disposition toward online teaching. There will be opportunities to differentiate the tasks across grade levels, content areas, and service areas.
Participants are required to implement online instructional lessons through integration of TKES, National Standards for Quality Online Learning, iNACOL, and InTASC.
Courses are designed to be taken in sequence, beginning with A Foundation for Effective Online Teaching and ending with Effective Online Teaching in Action. The Online Teaching Endorsement is divided into three courses consisting of 5 PLUs each. Successful completion of all three courses is required to add the Online Teaching Endorsement to a base certificate.
