ACAMIS Online PD Programs

Please scroll down to see lists of future, ongoing and past online programs.


 

Online Program Structure:

Based on extensive research, we have developed a model for virtual professional development that will:
  • Enable participants to learn at their own pace using a mix of content delivery methods to meet the needs of various learning styles and preferences;
  • Challenge participants to apply knowledge and tools introduced throughout the program to their own working context;
  • Connect participants to process content collectively and share unique experiences and perspectives; and
  • Demonstrate understanding of knowledge and tools by having peers review assignments and presentations.
The program is designed to ensure participants can apply the concepts and tools from the course ‘on-the-job’, regardless if they are meeting with their teams face-to-face or virtually. Content is broken up over a series of weeks to ensure there is time to apply learning from each module before new content is introduced. Please refer to the online learning components below:
 

Online Learning Modules: The online learning modules are for asynchronous, personalized learning throughout the week. Content uploaded at the beginning of each module will include, but not limited to: recorded lectures, articles, case studies, recorded instructions for cohort activities and interviews.

Live Webinars with Small Group BreakoutsLive Webinars will be hosted on Saturdays. Each Webinar will be 3 hours long.

These webinars are designed to review asynchronous content assigned prior to the start of the course, introduce tools and best practices related to the content and allow for participants to discuss real cases and share experience. Small groups will use ‘breakout rooms’ to answer reflective questions to deepen thinking and broaden perspective. Different grouping strategies will be used during these webinars to ensure participants maximize their exposure to a range of experience and perspectives. 

Virtual Office Hours:  All facilitators will have an Appointments link available for all participants to book a 60-minute meeting with her/him throughout the course. Some courses may limit the number of meetings a participant may book. These office hours can be used to review content, discuss cases within the participant's school or review content if the participant misses a live webinar.
