Join a cohort of international school educators as we delve deep into elements of Educational Technology Leadership.
Over the course of 3 months, the cohort will read/view seminal works (articles, books, videos, etc.) focused on the current issues in international education, educational technology, and leadership. Cohort members will engage with the material through online discussions, forums, and reflections on learning.
Cohort members will also get the opportunity for live discussion and exchange through webinars held in April, May, and June, 2017. During these webinars, experts from the field and guest facilitators will present and hold discussions related to topics in the course materials. These engaging webinars will give participants to connect with industry leaders and explore topics at deeper and more personal level. Webinars will include live presentations and discussions, back-channel conversations, and archived recording.
