Certificate in Technology Enhanced TeachingA blended professional development programme developed in collaboration with the Center for Educational Innovation & Digital Learning at Lamar University in the United States.
The Professional Development of your teaching staff is key in ensuring you get the very best return on investment in the deployment of technology across your institution. Not only do teaching staff gain a better understanding of what the technology has to offer, but also on how to capitalise on the use of modern tools such as Office 365 and others to enhance their teaching practice.
This ‘Certificate in Technology Enhanced Teaching’ offers teaching staff a short comprehensive professional development programme the outcome of which rewards staff with a certificate which can be converted into academic credit towards a Lamar or participating university Masters Programme. The programme consists of two elements:
Part One: The completion of 4 x Half-Day Face to Face workshops delivered by fully qualified Tablet Academy consultants and supported by online resources. These workshops can be customised to meet the needs of your institution and based on your technology deployment. Tablet Academy consultants are fully endorsed by Lamar University to run the programme.
Part Two: The creation by participating staff of an ePortfolio of evidence demonstrating the use of technology in their teaching practice.
Assessment: After grading of the ePortfolio by a University Faculty member, successful participants are awarded a non-credit bearing certificate which can, at a later date, be converted into full academic credits, representing 1/6th towards the Lamar University online M.Ed. in Digital Learning and Leading or other participating university post-graduate programme.
