Abstract

The departments of Adult and Community College Education (ACCE) and Mathematics, Science and Technology Education (MSTE) within the College of Education at North Carolina State University developed a prototype graduate certificate program in Community College Teaching. The program focuses on developing the knowledge and skills necessary to design and deliver course-related content through technology-enhanced learning environments for faculty who teach in Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics (STEM) related areas. The courses developed for the graduate certificate enhance faculty abilities in both online and classroom environments. Current community college faculty from North Carolina and South Carolina have been recruited into the program. The project meets the broader goals of the NSF-Advanced Technological Education (ATE) program by institutionalizing the means by which working professionals can be recruited to fill shortages in community college faculty teaching positions in STEM fields. It also provides a means whereby current community college faculty can upgrade their instructional skills. The paper describes the online program and presents summary data from the first online course.
