Stage 3 Qualifies for TESL Ontario PTCT Accreditation

training_tallOntario LINC teachers have an additional incentive to complete Stage 3 of the LearnIT2teach training: graduates are now eligible for Post-TESL Certificate Training (PTCT) accreditation from TESL Ontario. Since 2012, TESL Ontario has been accrediting professional development or training that meets the standards set out in the PTCT framework. Stage 4 of the LearnIT2teach training was the first course to qualify for PTCT.

The focus of Stage 3 is using Moodle, an open-source learning management system, to support best practices in blended learning and settlement language training. Participants are introduced to adapting Moodle for language instruction. Teachers learn how to customize courseware, author activities, add dynamic content, enhance course communication with blocks, and utilize learning objects from the Tutela.ca collection. Participants should be teaching in a blended context as they are required to deploy a Moodle course with learners.

In order to meet the PTCT standards, Stage 3 has been revised to meet TESL Ontario’s requirements and is now a new course. Unfortunately, teachers who have already completed this stage of training do not qualify for the PTCT accreditation.

New Administrator’s Guide Available!

[important]New Release,The Moodle 2 edition of the Administrator’s Guide to Integrating & Managing Blended Learning is now available as a PDF download at http://learnit2teach.ca/wpnew/moodle_2_5_manual/LIT2T_Admin_Manual_2014_WEB.pdf . For those not familiar with the 2012 edition, the manual contains loads of information, resources and tools for managers of language training programs on how to get blended learning up and running, and how to keep it running smoothly.[/important]

The migration of the LINC learner courseware to Moodle 2.5 had an important ripple effect on our project training tools. Many of the 85 pages in the first edition of the Administrator’s manual became out of date or downright inaccurate. A limited number of printed copies of the Moodle 2 edition are available by request to Scott@learnit2teach.ca Or you can look for us at the upcoming TESL Canada and BC TEAL conferences and ask for a copy on the spot!

Good luck, Mirella!
