Join Us for eNet this Winter!

December 17th, 2021 by Tracey Mollins

Happy December!

We made it through another year and as we reflect on 2021, we are — as always — wildly impressed with the thoughtful work of our colleagues around the province.

At AlphaPlus, we have the good fortune of hearing about all the amazing and innovative ways programs are working with literacy learners across the province. Our focus is digital technology, but our conversations with practitioners meander over many fields and we find treasures in each one. Thank you all for contributing to our knowledge and to making literacy work the best work.

One of the ways we hear about and share promising practices is through eNet.

Join Us for eNet – Winter 2022

eNet is our short name for the Educator Network — a collaborative, supportive space where literacy instructors can connect with colleagues from other programs to share new tools, resources and ways of doing things.

As an AlphaPlus eNet participant, you will:

  • Find support to plan, experience and evaluate new approaches.
  • Build relationships with colleagues and develop your own professional development network.
  • Increase your confidence in applying blended learning theories and methods in your practice.

French eNet takes place in collaboration with COFA (Coalition ontarienne de formation des adultes) and is delivered within four online workshops starting December 15. Contact Guylaine to find out more about subjects, dates and registration.

English eNet will meet synchronously via Zoom and asynchronously in Moodle. Do not worry if you are not familiar with Moodle, because we will support new users.

Our tentative time for Zoom sessions is Tuesdays from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m., but we can adjust this to accommodate the schedule of the group.

Planning a Digital Toolbox (English)

If a self-paced version of eNet would work better for you, you can sign up for Planning a Digital Toolbox. 

Planning a Digital Toolbox is six modules for exploring digital technology tools and resources that will enhance and expand learning in your program.  You can work through the modules at your own pace starting any time after January 17, 2022. 

The program is delivered in Moodle. Do not worry if you are not familiar with Moodle because we will support new users.
