A teaching program that was discontinued in 2009 because of budget cuts has been revamped at Humboldt State University and brought back as a series of online courses. Graduate students and working teachers who want to teach at the community college level can now earn a faculty preparation certificate by completing a 12-unit online program. The curriculum spans three semesters and includes classes on everything from how to organize a college course to assessing student progress. Chris Hopper, associate dean of professional studies at HSU, said the program started Monday and that 13 students throughout the state are participating. ”This is sort of our kick-off in terms of getting the courses online,” Hopper said. “The online format enables a much broader format to engage people.”
