The program in the online context is known as the Teach Well Program, and is designed to prepare instructors to serve students with disabilities in inclusive settings.

The Teach Well Program consists of coursework that aim to provide a well-rounded program of study for anyone currently teaching students with disabilities or other learning differences, as well as for individuals entering the field of special education from other disciplines. The core curriculum of this program consists of 36 credits, or 12 courses. The duration of this program takes approximately 18-24 months to complete. Some of the classes students will take through this course of study span topics such as Evaluation in Special Education, Differentiated Instruction, Math Strategies for Struggling Learners, and Family and Teacher Perspectives. The overall goal of the Teach Well Program is to provide a vehicle through which students can obtain the knowledge and skills necessary to be an effective educator for all students, particularly those with special needs.
