This Training of Trainers (TOT) course is designed to provide teachers and policy makers with skills, knowledge and confidence to effectively deliver the C-DELTA program using the COL platform for students and teachers in their respective schools/ educational institutions.
- develop trainers personal skills and knowledge about Digital Education Leadership and the curriculum
- develop trainers ability to educate managers, teachers, students about the concepts
covered in the C-DELTA programme
- help trainers familiarise managers, teachers, and students with the use of the C-DELTA
platform and downloadable pdfs for use in their own schools/institutions
The online TOT course draws on an experiential learning approach. This enables participants to undertake some activities in the C-DELTA modules, gain a personal experience of the pedagogical approach and advance their own digital education leadership simultaneously.
The intention is to engage participants with the content first and then draw on their personal experience to explain the principles and pedagogical approach underpinning the Framework. This will avoid a theoretical presentation and instead offers a learning opportunity through which participants can situate their own experience.
Over the course of the 3 weeks participants will engage with key ideas from each of the modules through watching video presentations, undertaking activities on their own, sharing and discussing and ideas with their group both synchronously and asynchronously, and will engage in personal reflection. They will become familiar with the COL online learning platform and will leave the workshop with some tangible strategies and ideas for taking the C-DELTA program forward in their own contexts.
Using a case study approach, engage the participants in the exploration of core concepts of digital footprints, digital identity, searching, ownership, privacy, and networking to enable them to explore core concepts of digital literacy and unpack assumptions around its complexities.
