Upcoming NCLE and NCLE Stakeholder Events
September 30 - November 24
Digital Learning Transition MOOC for Educators (MOOC-Ed)
Registration is now open at https://courses.mooc-ed.org/dlt2/preview. This free course, offered by the Alliance for Excellent Education and Friday Institute for Educational Innovation at North Carolina State University, will help K-12 educators plan and implement digital learning initiatives that enable their schools to meet educational challenges.
Kickoff Panel: Innovating STEM & Literacy
9:00 p.m. EDT: STEM and literacy are two pillars of our educational challenge that virtually every educator is striving to address in one form or another, and connected education has a lot to offer both. What are the latest innovations in STEM and literacy education, and what new techniques can teachers apply in their classrooms today? Where are the overlaps and reinforcements between STEM and literacy, and what learnings do these pedagogical fields have to offer one another? Join a powerful panel from both backgrounds (including Don Buckley, Jeanne Century, Elyse Eidman-Aadahl, and Kent Williamson, NCLE Director) in getting the proverbial ball rolling on this fundamental CEM theme.
October 1 - October 31
