Participants will be on their own to implement many of the tools, applications, and theories we have covered throughout the program. Their grade for this course is based on their application of what they have learned in their own classroom or working environment and their own reflection and involvement in the COETAIL community.
Educators will develop an understanding of the necessity of reflecting on their teaching practices, methods, and curriculum and determine their appropriateness for the 21st century learner. The importance of staying abreast of the current trends in curriculum and assessment will be addressed with an emphasis on students becoming globally literate and reflecting on their own learning.
