About our PimaOnline Faculty Development Course Series

We provide free courses for all Pima faculty - including face-to-face, hybrid, and online instructors at Pima Community College. These short, 4-week and 5-week courses are designed to expand your online pedagogy and course design skills using D2L Brightspace and third-party tools.

All faculty who anticipate teaching a pre-designed, D2l Brightspace course (i.e. course "masters") are strongly encouraged to complete our introductory course, TE125 TEACH: Introduction to Online Pedagogy. For advanced courses in online design and teaching, please view the offerings below.
