- Knowing how to better navigate and plan digital technologies, matching the best and most appropriate digital tools to the learning
- Ensuring clear, consistent communication and safe learning environments for students, parents, and colleagues
Self-Paced, Online Course with Face-to-Face Learning Experience Labs
The Remote Learning Educator Certification is a self-paced, online program. Participants can begin anytime and go at their own speed throughout the program.
Upon enrollment, you will receive a program invitation email from TCEA’s learning management system (Instructure’s Canvas) that will give you access to the self-paced course. Within the course, you will find modules that must be moved through in sequential order. The modules can be found below.
The face-to-face learning experience labs will be held monthly via Zoom web conferencing and attendance is optional. The purpose of the learning experience labs is to share success stories, ask questions, and build community as you go through the online course.
Upon successful completion of all modules, you will receive TCEA’s custom digital badge and certificate.
