what others have said about the teaching college masterclass

Eng's one-sentence lesson plan will revolutionize the way you plan your classes. He also suggests ways to add writing to all class activities to ensure that those activities have the learning impact that they should.


I think the material is FANTASTIC! ... The videos are engaging and beautifully - paced... especially appreciated the sections where you encourage instructors to focus on main ideas and content. Too often we think that EVERYTHING is important, and we ignore the very basic principles of how people actually learn and how much they are able to digest at a time.

Norman's system for teaching simplifies everything. I can take care of planning on Sunday and focus on my other stuff the rest of the week. The student Avatar lesson alone is worth the price - it made me think of my teaching from a student's perspective in everything I do... This course is perfect for new and seasoned faculty who are juggling multiple responsibilities (that's all of us) yet care that their students are actually learning. No other course or professional development workshop even comes close to transforming teaching.

frequently asked questions

Couldn't I just buy a book on online instruction? Or find everything I need for free online?

You can definitely go online and find everything about online instruction—for cheap or for free. But with so much out there, you’ll have to separate the good from the bad. Who’s got the time? More importantly, you’re on your own. YOU have to search for the right topics. YOU have to test it. YOU have to refine it. And try again.

With my premium course, you have a SYSTEM. Everything you need, from planning to teaching. And we’re guiding you all the way, step-by-step, so it’s much more hands-on and immersive than any book. All you have to do is follow this system. It’s your shortcut to success.

What does your course have that others DON'T?

Many campus workshops focus on isolated areas like how to use your LMS or Zoom. Other books and courses overly focus on the WHAT and not enough on the HOW. Literally they recommend things like, “Be responsive to your students”, “Your videos don’t have to be perfect!” and “Provide clear directions and expectations” (these are their exact words). While all true, none of them are actionable. And many of these courses charge you hundreds.

Instead, TCO shows you what makes a good video (including lighting, audio, and video recommendations). A step-by-step format for asynchronous and synchronous lessons. An actual mini-lecture video that Norman recorded for his students, for your reference. Two templates to help you design your syllabus. And more.

Basically, we “show,” not “tell.”

Second, Teaching College Online (TCO) is a system of instruction, not general tips, tricks, and hacks. It focuses on students and their experiences, not on content. MOST online instructors—novices and veterans alike—can’t get past that.

Third, we give you the 80/20—the FEW important things (the 20%) that yield the BIGGEST impact (the 80%). There are only 2 modules and a total of 10 lessons. Each training video averages less than 15 minutes, which means you could binge-watch and finish the TCO course in one day. Other experts’ programs take 8 weeks or more to finish. They also cover every detail. Who’s got the time? We focus on two things: Your foundation and your instruction. Again, Teaching College Online is the shortcut.

Fourth, you get focused and practical implementation guides and templates, something most other courses don’t give (who actually gives you a syllabus template, let along two?). Video & audio downloads. Transcripts. But you won’t get pages and pages of materials. ‘Cuz then you’d never use ’em. Norman once took a pedagogy course with a 250-page workbook, and never once looked at it. His PDFs are concise and bite-sized.

Finally, how many other courses provide ongoing instructional support after you purchase? You get a Mastermind community online of like-minded instructors to ask questions, network, etc. For good. Think about it: Where else can you get collective advice so quickly? Norman has taken many online courses, and the communities that give him the freedom to ask questions anytime anywhere is INVALUABLE.

Is the Teaching College Masterclass right for me?

If you’re a new teacher—whether a grad assistant, an adjunct working on your PhD, a career-changer, or an assistant professor—you’ve come to the right place. Simple as that.

If you’re looking to upgrade, and students aren’t maximizing their potential, you’ve come to the right place. TCM will give you the tools to ensure they grow. My lessons allow you to jump around, so feel free to go straight to parts you need. This is your one-stop shop.

If you’re a college administrator looking to augment your faculty’s instructional capacity, then TCM can work for you. We can allow multiple log-ins for your staff so they can learn how to teach effectively from the comfort of their…wherever. Click HERE for details.

If you’re a K-12 educator (teacher or administrator), you can learn a lot from this course too. I have a lot of K-12 teachers who realize that everything I teach applies to any industry. And since I came from the K-12 world, you’ll feel right at home.

If you educate/train others for a living—whether in sales, real estate, or what have you, you can also learn the principles that guide expert instructors.

What are the payment options?

We offer two options:

  • #1: ONE-TIME PAYMENT OF $297

Which ever option you choose, you will have FULL access to the course immediately. Don’t forget we offer a 30-day, 100% money-back guarantee when you show your work. You can get started today for $85. Or you can pay one time for $297 and save $43.

That’s 70 percent off the regular price of $997 listed on the website.

What if I want a refund? What's the policy?

So, here’s the deal on refunds. We pride ourselves on high quality programs that actually work…if you put the work in. Meaning, if you follow the training, good things happen. If you don’t do it, nothing good happens. Shocking, right?

However, if you are unhappy, email us within 30 days and show us your work—this means completing the Lesson 1 worksheet—and you will receive a full refund. We stand behind the Teaching College Online program 100%.

I have a question. Who should I ask?

Depends. If you are in the program and have questions about teaching, post it on the members only Facebook community group.
