I’m pleased and excited to announce that the VCU School of Education is running our first Emerging Technologies Institute this summer. It’s a fully online professional development program for educators. There are six courses available to educators, and each can be taken for university credit and/or for recertification points (non-credit). You can obtain details about the courses and registration by clicking on the image above.
I do want to direct particular attention to the course I’m teaching, Educational Technology for School Leaders. As I wrote on the Institute site: “This course lies squarely at the intersection of educational technology and school leadership. We will explore a range of issues, from pedagogical considerations and associated tool choices to more pragmatic leadership issues of planning, funding, and faculty development.”
The ideal “student” for this course is a sitting or aspiring school leader who is at the early stages of exploring the affordances of technology for teaching, learning and leading. But, even technologically literate educators who want to more deeply explore leadership issues such as technology planning/funding, legal/ethical issues around technology, tech.-focused professional development, etc. would be great co-learners.
If this isn’t the right opportunity for you, it might be for one of your friends/colleagues. If so, please share this post with them.
And, of course, if you have any questions about the course (or the Institute), please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
