How do COETAILers grow as Connected Learners?

Have you missed any of the posts in our ISTE Standards series? Read more about how COETAILers embody the standards here!

During the fall of 2019, COETAILers in Online 11 will take Courses 3 & 4 with the option to also take Leadership for School Program Improvement (EDL 663) through the University of Kentucky. While the COETAIL courses focus on the ISTE Standards for Educators, the University of Kentucky courses focus on the ISTE Standards for Education Leaders. Scroll down for a peek at what combining these two certificates would look like!

This fall, we’re realigning our courses to the new ISTE Standards to equip today’s educator with the knowledge & skills to impact student learning.

“The ISTE Standards for Educators are your road map to helping students become empowered learners. These standards will deepen your practice, promote collaboration with peers, challenge you to rethink traditional approaches and prepare students to drive their own learning.” (source)

We’re also collaborating with the University of Kentucky to align our courses to include overlapping assignments, allowing you to grow as both an Educator and an Education LeaderScroll down for more information on our partnership with the University of Kentucky and a peek at the combined learning journey. Did you know that registration for Online 11 is open?! Don’t miss out on this transformational learning journey!

Bonus: Our partnership gives you the opportunity to stack graduate certificates on your way to your Master’s in Education (or even Ph.D.!) from a Research 1 university.

The next ISTE Standard in our series is Connected Learner:

ISTE Standards for Educators // Connected Learner

Leaders model and promote continuous professional learning for themselves and others. Education leaders:


Set goals to remain current on emerging technologies for learning, innovations in pedagogy and advancements in the learning sciences.


Participate regularly in online professional learning networks to collaboratively learn with and mentor other professionals.​


Use technology to regularly engage in reflective practices that support personal and professional growth.​


Develop the skills needed to lead and navigate change, advance systems and promote a mindset of continuous improvement for how technology can improve learning.

Eduro Learning embraces a community approach to learning. We believe that our community is essential to COETAIL’s identity so we are letting their voices speak for the program. Below, COETAILers share how they grew as Connected Learners during their journey.

If nothing else, COETAIL has made me a connected learner. I am regularly engaged in online PLNs, work collaboratively with colleagues from around the world, have been mentored by and mentor others in person and online.

I connected with other educators all over the world to share the experience.
