|Emerging E-leaders programme 2014||Register|
The focus of this programme is on empowering and equipping teachers to demonstrate leadership in e-learning within their school and community. This will be achieved through a collaborative, community-based approach to professional learning, using a blended approach that addresses both personal and school needs.
Teachers with responsibility/aspiration to lead e-Learning within their school. Participants do not need to have current responsibility for e-Learning in their schools, or leadership at any level per se, but should demonstrate a desire and willingness to carry out such roles in the future.
This programme consists of four modules each lasting for five weeks. This involves a commitment of between 5-8 professional learning hours, including up to 3 hours synchronous facilitation per module. In week one of each module the facilitator group engages with CORE facilitator in synchronous online session to outline the module content and explore some of the main themes. During weeks 2 and 3 the participants complete a task/activity which is supported by online resources, forums/discussions monitored and contributed to by the facilitators. Week 4 features a group feedback and reflection via Google Hangout, while week 5 is a time for reflection and completion of follow-up activity for the module.
The participants collaborate together throughout the programme.
