Message From The Director
I hope this message finds you settling well into your new program year! What does your post-pandemic master schedule look like? Are you offering mostly in-person programming or are you offering a mix of instructional settings including blended and remote? How are you integrating technology-rich instructional strategies and resources into these spaces? What technology resources do you find to be most beneficial for your students? How are you arming your instructional teaching and support staff with the skills they need to effectively integrate technology into their courses regardless of the setting?
This fall, OTAN is offering two courses to support your staff with targeted technology integration. The Triple E Framework launches in early September and measures how well a technology tool or activity engages, enhances, and extends learning. OTAN has applied the Triple E Framework specifically to adult education. This course is designed to walk instructors through a process of designing lesson plans that engage, enhance, and extend learning for students. The BEST course, Building an EdTech Strategy Toolkit, starts in October and is designed to walk instructors through a thoughtful process of designing strategic, sustainable instructional routines that leverage edtech and are centered around the factors that most impact their learners. Register for these and other OTAN trainings on the California Adult Education Professional Development site.
Turn to OTAN for your in-person, hybrid, or fully virtual technology training needs. Reach out to OTAN staff by phone or email at 916-228-2580 or email@example.com. Have a great start to your fall!
Director, Adult Education
