Quality Learning and Teaching (QLT) Online

QLT Online PIE words next to a PIE chart

The Quality Learning and Teaching (QLT) Online Pedagogies for Inclusive Excellence (PIE) Certificate is your go-to faculty development program for all things related to learning and teaching online. The QLT PIE Certificate program consists of three courses — “Online Teaching Lab;” “Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion PIE Institute;” and participation in “Teaching Square.” The three courses are optional and can be taken individually, in sequence or simultaneously.

*The QLT PIE was funded by a HEERF allocation to support faculty as they transitioned to remote instruction.*  

The courses in this certificate program represent what we call a Slice of PIE. Each Slice of PIE addresses one of our three main curricular components — foundational knowledge, specialized knowledge and peer learning community. Once you participate and complete all three courses — Slices of PIE — in this program, you will receive the QLT Online PIE Certificate!
