The @BlackboardK12 BITS Learning Sessions #10 #BbK12Live

I've partnered with BlackboardK12 to share out the awesome sessions they are having this Fall. Educators can sign up to attend and share with other great educators what they have learned. I'll feature the session and the description on my blog each week and on my Twitter account. If you have questions, feel free to shoot a tweet to @BlackboardK12. Have fun learning and sharing!

School-University Partnership for Preparing and Supporting K-12 Online Teachers

The North Carolina Virtual Public School and Lenoir-Rhyne University have developed a school-university partnership designed to invest in building capacity for K-12 online teachers. This partnership contributes to the field of online learning in critical areas, including quality preparation of K-12 online teachers and research into effective practices for preparing and supporting K-12 online teachers. In this session, a representative from each institution will share their efforts to develop and sustain this collaborative partnership. Specifically, presenters will highlight the joint online teaching practicum and share findings from research into effective methods for preparing and supporting K-12 online teachers.

  1. It is a really good thing, you know! You’ve done a big job. I am sure that teachers will definitely appreciate it. It is not that often when someone is doing something for them. For some reason we all think that students require our support with all their essays online. But what about teachers? How can they are always forgotten? Thanks to people like you are they are not! Let us know how many teachers chose to sign up for this program


Please post your thoughts here. Thanks!
