Creating Capacity for Quality and Equitable Digital Learning
A Professional Development Workshop Series for Faculty, Staff, and Administrators from NWCCU Institutions


Amidst the backdrop of the global pandemic and social unrest, educators across the country are grappling with the ways in which they might move towards building sustainable foundations for inclusive access to a quality and equitable education for all learners. With the knowledge that all stakeholders within the online learning community must be a part of this solutions work, the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities has established a new initiative to provide comprehensive professional learning and strategic support for educators at their institutions around the topic of high impact, equitable practices for online, blended, and digital learning.

NWCCU is happy to announce our partnership with the Online Learning Consortium (OLC), Every Learner Everywhere (ELE), and funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to offer a self-paced professional development workshop on developing quality digital learning. This free self-paced workshop series provides in-depth preparation on online course design, facilitation, and assessment to ensure students receive a high-quality education, regardless of modality.

About the Workshop Series

The series of customized training on equitable online education is designed for educators with different roles and across discipline groups to engage in a series of topics related to the development and facilitation of quality instruction offered in digital learning environments. The training is broken down into three discrete offerings tailored to the following respective populations:

  1. Train the Trainer: Educators who might serve as mentors to faculty responsible for the design and facilitation of online courses
  2. Faculty: Educators who are seeking resources and support for designing, facilitating, and assessing quality online instruction within inclusive digital learning environment
  3. Administrators: Institutional leaders and decision makers responsible for leading and scaling quality digital learning that equitably supports educational success.

Details and registration information will be sent to NWCCU’s member institutions in the coming weeks. For questions about this workshop series, please contact NWCCU’s Data and Project Manager, Shanna Toth, at
