UOG faculty earn online teaching certifications
Twelve University of Guam faculty members have become certified through the I Meyeng UOG-Certified Online Teacher Program. A CHamoru word for “expert,” the “I Meyeng” designation is given to faculty members who complete 100 training hours in online teaching professionalization.
Launched in March 2020, UOG’s Online Teaching Resources Team developed the program to help faculty gain new skills and professionalize their online classrooms during the pandemic. The OTR team — led by Director Andrea Sant, Course Development Specialist Merissa Bunton, and Instructional Design Coach Dean Olah — received a Triton Team Award in December for the program’s success.
The program includes courses and workshops focused on online teaching best-practice scholarship. Topics include how to redesign face-to-face curriculum for online delivery and how to advance Moodle — UOG’s online teaching platform — technology skills. To date, 365 online teaching certificates have been earned by UOG faculty.
The faculty members who earned their full certification are:
College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences
