Yes, participants; I *know* the MicroCourse is over but I just couldn't resist posting this opportunity for any of you who are still subscribed to this forum.
This wonderful opportunity was posted this morning in the Creative Commons Open Education (CC-OPENEDU) group:
Greetings Fellow Educators!
Trent Online would like to invite you to join us in pursuing the Ontario Extend Empowered Educator Micro-Certification this spring. Ontario Extend is a professional learning experience from eCampusOntario which helps educators build on the skills needed for teaching in a digital age. There are 6 modules that make up the Empowered Educator framework: Teacher for Learning, Technologist, Collaborator, Curator, Experimenter, and Scholar. Each module comes with a badge. Once you complete them all you are awarded the Empowered Educator micro-certification!
The heart of the program is in the work that you do to provide evidence of your learning. Throughout the modules, you are asked to create a variety of authentic products that aid in your teaching. You create visual syllabi, empathy maps, and plans for leveraging new technology. You curate open educational resources for your subject area. And, perhaps most importantly, you enhance your professional learning network.
We are running the experience in the form of a mOOC (a medium-sized Open Online Course). What that means is that any one in the world is invited to join us for the adventure. Its openness also means that you are welcome to join us for as little or as much of the experience as you like. Even if just to check it out and say hi, we would love to have you along for as much of the ride as you’d like.
Please add your name to the growing list of those interested in participating in the Spring 2021 Ontario Extend mOOC by filling out the form here.
