A Stepping Stone to Teaching or Training

Norwich University’s Teaching and Learning Certificate program is designed to equip professionals who already have subject matter expertise within their academic discipline with the knowledge, skills, and credentials to teach at the post-secondary level or train in a corporate setting.  Maybe this is why it is so popular with our alumni. Throughout the course of the program, you will  examine the roles and responsibilities of teachers and students and acquire skills for effective teaching in both online and in-person settings. Key curriculum objectives include learning how to craft educational experiences for diverse learners, create effective assignments and classroom materials, and develop and sustain a vibrant learning community.

The Norwich Advantage

  • Our curriculum combines relevant theory with real-world application, allowing you to take what you learn in class and immediately apply it to your teaching or training.
  • Our skilled faculty members bring a wealth of teaching experience to the virtual classroom and also provide personalized support and guidance. 
  • Our program structure of two 11-week courses means that you can earn your certificate in as little as six months.
  • During the program, you will develop a coursework portfolio that will help showcase your skills to future employers.
  • Through our flexible online platform, you can access program content and contribute to class discussions on your own schedule and at your own pace each week.
  • Four start dates per year (March, June, September, and December) allow you to begin the program when it’s most convenient for you.

Career Preparation

Norwich’s Teaching and Learning Certificate can provide you with the foundation to teach at a two- or four-year university or in a military or corporate educational setting - in online, hybrid, and face-to-face environments. The skills you gain through this program will also be useful in a wide range of professional positions within and outside the field of education.
