Educator Certification Program

The eThink team is excited to offer the Educator Certification Program developed by Moodle HQ's Education Team. In this program participants will work through six different modules in order to demonstrate effectiveness with digital competencies using Moodle Tools. Going beyond your average “how to” training on Moodle functionality, the ECP’s focus is on teaching and learning with consideration for how certain tools can be leveraged to meet a variety of instructional goals. eThink experts will support you as you work through this comprehensive, competency-based curriculum.

The design of the modules reflects the following beliefs:
1. Educators are the focus of our attention, not features. We honour the expertise of educators engaged in our models. We show them some Moodle teaching approaches and build in facilitated and self-regulated learning experiences. Our educators are asked to consider their own best work in the modules, as well as ways they may apply the ideas in their own teaching and learning practice using Moodle.
2. Teaching practice is informed by qualitative feedback.
We try to model specific behaviors like providing exemplars in Moodle, making room for experimentation, encouraging reflection, and requesting feedback from our participants. The reflections we ask educators to make are in the service of “what just happened” and making future decisions based on that information.

We plan for this fully online blended course to be offered Monday, June 3  - Friday, July 19, 2019 with a 1 hr synchronous session each Tuesday at 1 PM EST. These sessions will be recorded, but we encourage live attendance to engage with your learning cohort. This opportunity to ask questions and view the work of others will help cement your experience.

Participants can expect to spend approximately 4-6 hours after the live session engaging with the supporting content and activities.

Moodle administrators, instructional designers, and teachers will all benefit from this deep dive. The blended approach of this course will appeal to those learners who like to work at their own pace but need a jump start and ability to ask questions and collaborate as they explore.
