The Learner-Centred Instructor Certificate Program (LCI) is a 60-hour program. It is designed to be accessible for instructors who are currently working in an educational institution, or individuals with an educational focus who have access to a teaching/training position.
The LCI program provides new instructors the opportunity to increase their teaching skills while developing a learner centred philosophy of instruction. An integrated approach which merges practical training with theoretical learning will be used in the program to assist students in developing practical instructional skills for use in the classroom. By the end of the program participants will be able to create an engaging learner centred environment, and develop and deliver effective learner centred instructional strategies. Successful graduates of the program will receive an Okanagan College Learner Centred Instructor Certificate.
Applicants must be instructors who are currently working in an educational institution, or individuals with an educational focus who have access to a teaching/training position. English 12 with minimum 50% or alternatives.
The Learner Centred Instructor Program Certificate will be granted upon successful completion of the six courses in the program. Students must receive a minimum passing grade of 60 in each of the six courses.
