The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) has announced four webinars to support managers to develop the digital capabilities of teachers and trainers within their organisations for remote, blended and in class delivery. The four webinars, which are free to access, will be delivered by the team behind the educational technology (EdTech) offer on the ETF’s Enhance Digital Teaching Platform.
22 March, 13:30–14:30 Creating a culture of critical reflection to improve digital practices
Create a culture of critical reflection within your organisation to improve digital practices of both individuals and organisations.
22 March, 15:30–16:30 Accessibility maturity – an organisational approach to legal compliance/cultural change
Gain confidence to start creating roadmaps to help you comply with accessibility legislation. Using the Accessibility Maturity Model for Education, we’ll illustrate how accessibility impacts on all areas of your organisation, from practice to policy and process.
23 March, 14:30–15:30 Digital wellbeing and supporting your staff to manage theirs
Remote and blended delivery has meant that we are all using digital devices far more than normal. We will explore how you can support the digital wellbeing of teachers, trainers and support staff that you manage, as well as yourself.
23 March, 16:00–17:00 Digital strategies and digital savviness for managers
Developing your digital savviness can help inform the digital strategies you implement within your curriculum areas and organisations. Being able to make good judgements on the EdTech tools your organisation uses helps to prevent challenges and makes it easier to plan training and peer sharing opportunities.
The webinars will signpost relevant free resources available on the Enhance Digital Teaching Platform, which is underpinned by the Digital Teaching Professional Framework (DTPF), the ETF’s national EdTech competency framework. They will also show how staff can track and evidence their learning and how this can be viewed through the Management Dashboard so that support can be directed to help staff progress.
Vikki Liogier, National Head of EdTech and Digital Skills at the ETF, said:
“I am delighted to announce these new webinars for managers, reflecting the growing significance of the Enhance Digital Teaching Platform for organisations as well as practitioners. Staff from over 1,800 learning providers are using the platform, covering all parts of the sector including colleges, independent training providers, local authorities and third sector providers. Increasingly, those responsible for staff CPD are looking for support in developing digital skills and these webinars will show how we can assist.”
