Starting the Online Teaching and Learning Certificate program
We welcome your interest in the Online Teaching and Learning certificate program!
PLEASE NOTE: If you are already a graduate student at UGA, this Google form plus a one page statement of purpose is all you need to submit in order to apply for the certificate program.
If you are not yet a graduate student at UGA, you must be accepted by the graduate school before we can accept you into the certificate program. If you have already applied/been accepted, great! If not, further information, including how to apply as a certificate student, is on the Information Sheet you should have received when you inquired about the program.
For easy access, we've included a link to the Information Sheet here as well:
Feel free to read and download it for future reference.
What is your official name (the one you will use/used to apply to UGA -- last name, first name)?
What is your "call name" (the name you prefer to be called)?
What is your UGA email (if you have one yet)?
What is an alternate email (besides your UGAMail) that I can use to contact you? (FYI, all official emails will go through your UGAMail address, which all UGA students receive upon initial admission to UGA. If you don't plan to check that email regularly, I strongly suggest you have it forwarded to an email you do check every day.)
What is a phone number that I can call if I need to contact you in a hurry (I will usually go through email)?
In getting this certificate, do you want to earn the K-12 online teaching endorsement from the GA PSC? (This endorsement is only available to K-12 teachers who already have a renewable (not induction) teaching certificate in Georgia.)
Yes, I am planning to earn the Online Teaching Endorsement.
No, I am not planning to earn this endorsement.
Are you also enrolled/enrolling in a regular graduate degree program here at UGA?
Yes, I am enrolled/enrolling in a regular graduate degree program in addition to this certificate (if so, please ALSO check "other"; and list that degree (e.g., M.A.. in English or Ed.S. in LDT)
No, I applied to/will be enrolling at UGA as a certificate-only student.
If you are already a UGA student (degree or certificate or non-degree), what is your UGA student number? (If you aren't a UGA student yet, just write "not yet")
When do you plan to start taking courses toward the OTL certificate?
I am already taking/have taken some courses toward this certificate (if so, please ALSO check "other" and list the certificate courses you have and are taking)
How many certificate-related courses do you plan to take each term (there are five courses in the certificate program)?
not sure; it might be different in different terms
By when do you plan to finish the certificate? (just your best estimate; we won't hold you to it!)
What is your level of comfort with/knowledge of digital technology?

Tech newcomer - I'm interested, but really haven't used tech that much beyond everyday things like word processing and social media
Tech user - I use technology quite a bit in my work and/or daily life, but I prefer to stick with what I know or get help with new tech.
Tech comfortable - I use technology quite a bit in my work and/or daily life, and don't mind learning new tech if it's useful or gives me pleasure (e.g., a new grading app or drawing program)
Tech geek - I really like tech and love diving into something new, sometimes just for fun!
