The University of Houston – Clear Lake is a Texas Virtual School Network (TXVSN) approved provider of professional development for teachers who are new to online instruction and also for teachers who are experienced online instructors.

The TXVSN provides online courses to supplement the instructional programs of public school districts and open enrollment charter schools. TXVSN-approved professional development is required for all teachers teaching online courses for TXVSN provider school districts.

UHCL offers a three credit graduate course for non-experienced online instructors, Interactive Distance Learning and a choice of three courses for experienced online instructors, Technology and eLearning , Advanced Technology Applications, and Multimedia Design Applications.
