Let’s focus on the coal-face this month, with a course for teachers using Moodle.
If you are responsible for organising staff development for your teachers, lecturers, trainers, facilitators and you want to schedule some professional level online courses for them, it’s difficult to choosing anything better than MoodleBites for Teachers.
Developed by HRDNZ (official Certified Moodle Partner since 2006) this is one of the range of teacher level courses, designed for both new and existing teachers – those with a few years experience under their belt, but probably not yet familiar with everything that Moodle can do.
The course is completely online, and asynchronous, so there is no requirement to be online at any set time. This works well as the participants on MoodleBites courses are international, from all around the world, and spread across different timezones.
Many of the people taking MoodleBites courses comment that it’s such a great additional benefit being part of a course with others from all around the world, as it gives them different perspectives, and often new ideas for use in their own courses!
MoodleBites for Teachers is not a self-study course, because HRDNZ strongly believe that working in an online course together with a highly skilled and experienced facilitator, provides the ultimate in learning opportunities.
Due to it’s popularity MoodleBites for Teachers has five start dates each year! These are 1st February, 1st April, 1st June, 1st August, and 1st October (there are no MoodleBites courses through December-January as spanning the Christmas, New Year, and holiday period is not practical).
At $199 per person for the complete 8 weeks the course is really great value too! Successful participants are rewarded with an Open Badge and a Certificate of Completion at the end.
You can register for MoodleBites for Teachers at any time by using the onsite registration form.
