COETAIL bridges the geographical gap and encourages genuine relationships. COETAILers are empowered to build their PLNs, share successes, and implement ideas that transform student learning.

Learning in the COETAIL program is a social endeavor and occurs through a cohort model, instantly giving you access to a new, supportive community focused on student learning.

Designed by, and for, educators and grounded in the ISTE Standards, COETAIL participants become 'empowered professionals' and 'learning catalysts' in an authentic, practical, project-based learning environment.

PEDAGOGICAL FOUNDATIONS
The COETAIL program (Certificate of Educational Technology and Information Literacy) is based on sound pedagogical foundations that aim to help participants learn the material quickly and effectively within a community setting. We use a cohort system of learning; once a cohort starts they become a learning community and together support and learn from each other during their COETAIL journey. Throughout the program participants are encouraged to expand their thinking and take part in different online educational learning communities. The COETAIL program is designed to give participants multiple opportunities to learn and reflect on their teaching practices as they go through the program. The feedback participants receive from the learning community is rich in ideas, suggestions and encouragement.
