The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) developed a statewide initiative* designed to bring high quality, online professional learning opportunities to educators that will build their capacity to meet the dynamic needs of each learner in online, blended, and digitally rich learning environments. The offerings will help educators skillfully design and deliver challenging, engaging online and remote instruction using multiple methods and modes.
The Institute is partnering with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction to assist districts in this transition. These two agencies will work alongside other key strategic state partners including the Wisconsin Digital Learning Collaborative, (CESA 9 and eSchool Network) and the CESA Digital Learning and Instructional Coordinators to complete this work.
Within this website, educators will find professional learning opportunities, offered in a multi-modal format, that are on-demand and just in time. Educators can choose the courses that best meet their professional needs and the unique needs of their student population.
*This project is supported by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Program to serve all Wisconsin public, tribal, charter, and private schools serving students in grades 4K-12 and Institutes of Higher Education and licensing centers for pre-service educators.
An inclusive list of resources (for teachers, students, families, and communities) that can be leveraged to help in the planning and programming of high quality online and in-person teaching, learning, communication, and engagement.
Wisconsin Digital Learning Collaborative annually collects and synthesizes information from the field into a single resource. This work is aimed at elevating field happenings, quality and best practice, and continuous improvement and can be found on their website under case studies.
