eFaculty Certification

On 4/15/20, the Provost announced that all courses in Summer I and Summer II would be moved to solely online. This decision came after consultation with senior administrators including the academic deans, the faculty senate executive committee, and a small working group of faculty, staff, and administrators specifically charged with examining the issues and opportunities for remote learning in the summer.

The Provost also shared that training and support for online course design and best practices, including timely strategies, would be provided. 

This video showcases testimonials from LMU faculty who have recently completed the eFaculty Certification program and used the training to enhance their instruction.
