Blended Instructor Professional Learning and Coaching Exchange
A modular, blended, professional development exchange designed to support excellent curriculum design and instruction utilizing technology.
Regional technology and learning specialists are working together to create a modular blended professional development program designed to support excellent curriculum design and instruction utilizing technology. We are inviting you, your leadership teams and your school to be part of this collaborative.
This exchange supports schools and education leaders contributions and utilization of resources including:
- Using exchange modules, blended instructors and blended support systems to support your teaching and learning initiatives.
- Placing a professional learning module into the exchange
- Teaching and / or providing support for your module or for other exchange programming.
Modules feature an important research based curriculum and instruction strategy, like formative assessment. Each module also provides technology training designed to both support the featured strategy and to strengthen participants’ overall technology integration capacity. Modules are differentiated to provide specific instruction and coaching for the teacher practitioner, for curriculum and technology leaders and coaches, and for administrators or leadership teams.
The exchange is pre-populated with modules developed and taught by nationally certified online and blended learning instructors and supported by technology integration specialists/learning coaches. The courses can be delivered by exchange instructors in a face to face, blended or online setting. Sites may also purchase licenses to use these courses (taught by their own instructors) with SOCRATES staff support.
Exchange contributors are compensated when exchange users purchase a module license, instructional service or support service.
