Online Competencies Curriculum
A flexible, faculty-created resource to develop fundamental skills.
The OCC modules build the foundation for success in these key competencies. Students will be able to demonstrate basic knowledge in these areas to prepare them for further skill development. Students are asked questions throughout the modules to inform instructors of their comfort levels with the material and where further discussion may be beneficial.
Why Teach?

Students must learn a number of foundational skills in order to be successful in their academic and professional careers. These are not defined by major or discipline, but without them, new students and recent graduates may be unprepared for future work. We want our students to have a fulfilling, far-reaching and enriching learning experience. How can we help achieve that?

Funded by a generous grant from the Teagle Foundation, faculty and administrators from four colleges have collaborated on learning modules covering three emerging and evolving competencies:

Information Fluency
Technological Adaptability
Communication & Presentation

The OCC modules can be brought into courses individually or as a package. Students can also self-enroll in the modules, if they desire. Most of the modules can be used in any discipline area. Depending on the student's pace and prior knowledge, each should take between 30-45 minutes to complete.
