Faculty Orientation for Online Teaching
Statement of Policy
Excelsior College requires that instructional faculty successfully complete the FAC 100 New Faculty Orientation prior to teaching online courses.
FAC 100 is a self-paced tutorial, available to faculty at all times and can be started and completed in a time frame that is convenient for the individual. Each school is responsible for communicating this policy for completion of FAC 100 to their faculty.
Instructional faculty hired prior to January 2014 are exempt from taking FAC 100. With faculty program director approval, faculty may teach a course prior to completing the orientation; however, faculty must complete FAC 100 before receiving additional teaching assignments.
In special cases, a faculty program director may request that the school dean/dean designee grant an exemption from this policy.
