Grand Valley State University has an institutional level membership in the Online Learning Consortium (formerly the Sloan Consortium).

We have a limited number of seats available in OLC asynchronous online workshops on topics related to online and hybrid course development and delivery. Most workshops range in length from 10 days to three weeks, and provide opportunities to interact with faculty from a wide variety of institutions. The offerings are designed as online classes so that you may also experience being an online learner. Certificates are issued upon timely completion of all coursework.

Faculty who are interested in participating in OLC workshops should review the list of available topics.
