The add-on endorsement is based on successful completion of three courses, successful completion of a field-based practicum, and evidence of accomplishment of all items on an Online Teaching Endorsement Competency Checklist. You will enjoy learning from our quality faculty whose real-world experience and knowledge has been acquired through many years of teaching in the online environment.
