OTAN Course: BEST Course Orientation (Fall)

Name OTAN Course: BEST Course Orientation (Fall)
Date Monday, October 31, 2022
Time 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM

Since the pandemic, instructors have immersed themselves in a variety of educational technology tools to support remote instruction. As we settle back into more consistent models for instruction and learning, this course - Building an EdTech Strategy Toolkit (BEST) - is designed to walk instructors through a thoughtful process of designing strategic, sustainable instructional routines that leverage educational technology and are centered around the factors that most impact their learners. 

This orientation will describe the OTAN's BEST course for the Fall which is designed to help teachers develop a strategic approach to designing and implementing technology based routines for their learners. 

The course facilitators will discuss the course in detail including how to access the course, timelines, how the content is sectioned, and what is expected of participants. Questions will be answered and those that have not done so already may register for the course (dependent on available openings.)




Participants can expect to spend two to five hours per week working toward creating routines for integrating educational technology into their classroom.  Along with coursework, participants will meet three times online after the orientation for a total of four sessions. The middle two sessions will be for coaching and exact dates and times will be announced during the course orientation. Office hours will also be scheduled on an as-needed basis with coaches. The last session is the culmination of the course that ends with a Show and Tell in which participants will present two sustainable educational technology routines and report on their successes.


A separate flyer and course registration links will be sent to those that register for this orientation.



Participants must have basic computer skills.

Participants must have a valid email address.
