Faculty & Staff Professional Development


ISTE Standards for Educators:

Educators continually improve their practice by learning from and with others and exploring proven and promising practices that leverage technology to improve student learning.

Educators seek out opportunities for leadership to support student empowerment and success and to improve teaching and learning.

Educators inspire students to positively contribute to and responsibly participate in the digital world.

Educators dedicate time to collaborate with both colleagues and students to improve practice, discover and share resources and ideas, and solve problems.

Educators design authentic, learner-driven activities and environments that recognize and accommodate learner variability.

Educators facilitate learning with technology to support student achievement of the ISTE Standards for Students.

Educators understand and use data to drive their instruction and support students in achieving their learning goals.

The above points are summaries of the ISTE standards. For more information please see https://www.iste.org/standards/for-educators.

Educational Technology Support offers a variety of training and development programs focused on technology-enhanced teaching and learning, in order to advance our goal of encouraging instructors’ ability to deliver quality instruction in classroom, blended, and distance modalities.

Through its services, including professional development offerings, ETS aims to foster richer learning experiences and to support scholarship, research and community engagement within and beyond the Faculty of Education.

Our programs and workshops help faculty meet the Standards for Educators developed by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). These standards promote student engagement and creativity by enriching both learning and professional practice.
