Bakersfield College is partnering with the Kern County Superintendent of Schools to provide courses that train teachers in effective online teaching tools and techniques.
In March, as schools transitioned to an online teaching environment, BC provided training to more than 250 of its own faculty members. The training will now be available to its educational partners through the college’s Education Department, working with the Academic Technology Department.
The initial courses focus on Canvas tools used by the KCSOS district and its schools to provide online education. Courses are designed for currently credentialed teachers, college faculty or any teacher who would like to improve their online teaching skills or learn more about Canvas.
The program is launching this summer with the first course EDUC B30 - introduction to online learning environments. This course is intended for current and future educators as well as anyone interested in online teaching and instruction such as future administrators and instructional designers.
