The Educator Network for literacy facilitators*

The Educator Network 2022/23 program is eight reflective-practice modules for exploring blended learning approaches and digital technology tools and resources that will enhance and expand learning in your program. You will collaborate synchronously via Zoom sessions and practise with new approaches and tools asynchronously in a learning management system called Moodle. Don’t worry if you haven’t used Zoom or Moodle before — we will help you.

As an AlphaPlus Educator Network 2022/23 participant, you will:

  • Plan, experience and evaluate blended learning approaches and methods.
  • Increase your confidence in applying blended learning practices.
  • Build relationships with colleagues around the province.
  • Share ideas and resources.

The Educator Network at your organization

The Educator Network project has developed and facilitated organization-specific communities of professional learning at the Metro Toronto Movement for Literacy (MTML), the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) and la Coalition ontarienne de formation des adultes (COFA).

Contact Tracey or Guylaine to discuss possibilities for your organization.

The Educator Network enabled me to slow down and reflect on how I have been using technology and how I might improve my usage of it from a pedagogical/andrological standpoint. The course offered both a theoretical basis for using technology along with providing experience using new apps.

Educator Network participant

Participating in the Educator Network helped me to discover many educational tools, collaborate with other instructors, check their ideas and provide feedback. It was an excellent way to reflect on my thoughts on teaching and using digital technology as a learner and a teacher at the same time.

Educator Network participant

I found it really useful, fun and flexible. I got to choose my own combination of video meetings, online coursework, sharing forums, resource lists and documents designed to help me develop my own projects, over 8 weeks of learning.
