We just received an email with an opportunity that you may find interesting:
TakingITGlobal for Educators (TIGed) is offering scholarships for our upcoming professional development e-course for educators: “Empowering Student Voice in Education”. This graduate-level, accredited course is designed to help educators understand the value of cultivating and engaging student voice both inside and outside the classroom. Course material draws on the experiences of educators who have incorporated student voice in their teaching practice and designed experiences and projects that empower students to have an equal say in the decision-making processes that shape their education. Educators will critically examine the current state of student voice in their educational contexts, work towards designing a project that enables and enhances student voice and create meaningful connections with their peers worldwide. Microsoft’s Give for Youth campaign has sponsored 20 scholarships for this e-course. For scheduling and more information about TIGed’s e-courses, visit tigurl.org/ecourses. To be considered for this opportunity, please take a few minutes to fill out this survey.
Not having been part of the course, we can’t say anything about how good it will be, but we’d be very interested to find out what it’s like from anyone who takes up this opportunity.
If you prefer your training face-to-face, there are still spaces on our secondary Smart School Council Masterclass course.
