Online Teaching in Higher Education Environment


The Online Teaching in Higher Education Environment (OTHEE) Specialization is designed for individuals who want to be certified in teaching and developing online courses in higher education for their professional development purposes. The OTHEE specialization also meets an increasing need of higher education communities, around the world, in delivering instructional contents through online modalities during scaled interruptions (e.g., COVID-19) of on-campus instructional activities.

Who should apply

The OTHEE specialization is open to all degree-seeking and non-degree seeking graduate students at UIUC across disciplines. We strongly encourage individuals who are interested in developing competencies in online teaching in higher education contexts to apply for the specialization.
