The Digital Leadership Institute offers a variety of courses to assist experienced educators with methods, strategies, and techniques to effectively incorporate technology tools and distance learning into their everyday instruction and assessment of student learning.

Although the classes will utilize the Canvas Learning Management System, the lessons in the courses are not specific to a particular platform and will apply to a wide range of distance learning scenarios. Participants should be comfortable using technology to check email, compose documents in a word processing program and use Internet browsing software to search the Internet for information. Familiarity with a Learning Management System, such as Google Classroom, Canvas, Moodle, etc, is not a necessity, but a basic knowledge of how these programs work will provide a frame of reference for what opportunities await in the online realm. Previous experience writing online lessons is not required.

Participants who complete a course through the Digital Leadership Institute will receive 15 hours of seat time and will be eligible for one state recertification credit and five CUs toward CCSD’s Professional Growth Plan.
