Chapter 6: Faculty Support Services
Training and Support
Through the Quality Enhancement Plan that Manatee Community College designed for its
2003 SACS accreditation, SCF has dedicated a variety of resources to support faculty
development and to enhance resources available to faculty teaching distance learning
All full-time and adjunct faculty who teach online and blended courses must complete the eLearning certification process (see http://www.scf.edu/Academics/eLearning/FacultyInformation/eLearningFacultyHandbook/CourseApprovalProcess.asp).
Faculty who want to move into eLearning instruction need to contact their Department Chairs to be selected to be enrolled into the next eLearning Pedagogy course that is offered in Fall and Spring semesters. In addition, workshops will be offered every semester to enable faculty to gain competency in all areas of certification.
