emblemMiraCosta Online Teaching Certificate
Program for Online Teaching


Cohort #3 Approved Workshops

As noted at the POT website, you can watch any of the recordings at the POT site (or other professional development sites approved by POT as indicated at the POT website) and count it as flex under Conference Attendance so long as the following conditions are met:
1. You post on the Pedagogy First! blog a reflection of 250 words (contact Jim Sullivan if you need an account at the blog), and
2. You add the URL of that post to the “Location” text box on the Conference Attendance form, and
3. As with other conferences, the work must be done outside of teaching hours.

For the Online Teaching Certificate program, the same rules apply. Recordings are linked at the POT website and here when available.
