Introduction:
Each training in this series is self-paced and hosts a multitude of resources, examples and opportunities to apply your learning. Demonstrating mastery of all competencies in the series to earn the Effective Teaching with Technology badge. 

Included Courses:
In this self-paced course, we've organized content into four short, but dense, modules. For each topic, you'll find a list of basic competencies, lesson content delivered through text, videos and images, several core resources, and additional resources for a deeper dive into each topic.
Module topics include:
    • Why is Learning science important?
    • What do you need to know about brain science?
    • What do you need to know about mind science?
    • How do I apply learning science to my programs?
This competency-based training covers our four most commonlly leveraged educational technologies: Zoom, PowerPoint, Panopto and Canvas. For each tool, you will find carefully curated resources that include links to core trainings, and a list of basic competencies with targeted resources for each. An assessment to gauge your knowledge followed by a Demonstrate Your Mastery assignment. A digital credential will be awarded for successful mastery of each tool.
In this self-paced course, students will successfully demonstrate competencies that align with the Cognitive Theory of Multimedia Learning by:
  • defining multimedia,
  • identifying three core assumptions of multimedia learning theory,
  • identifying three types of cognitive processing/load,
  • providing instructional design strategies for each of the three types of cognitive load,
  • and describing Mayer's dual channel theory.
This self-paced training will begin by building your knowledge of the meaning and intent behind active learning, engaged students and inclusive teaching. From there, we'll introduce a broad range of principles and strategies applicable to online, blended and face-to-face programs. Lastly, we'll introduce technologies you can leverage to facilitate active learning, to engage students and incorporate inclusive teaching strategies into your programs.
