From March 19, 2019, the new program designed by the Moodle Education Team will be offered through specific Moodle Partners, who have been trained and certified by Moodle HQ to facilitate the modules.
We are excited to launch the Moodle Educator Certification Program: a new addition to the Moodle Education product initiatives that provides Moodle-verified certification options for educators.
The Moodle Educator Certification Program is a comprehensive, competency-based curriculum designed to help educators build mastery of digital competencies by using the Moodle platform. It is designed for teachers, instructors, and trainers who:
- Seek certification and recognition for their expertise using the Moodle platform to achieve teaching and learning goals
- Want to develop their knowledge of essential educational digital competencies required of today’s educators
- Wish to learn how to use Moodle in new and creative ways
- Enjoy collaborating with a community of innovative instructors
The Moodle Education Team
As a multi-disciplinary group of professionals, the Moodle Education Team works across all of our product initiatives, designing and developing teaching and learning programs and resources.
The Moodle Educator Certification Program was the vision of Moodle HQ’s late Tom Murdock, who was deeply committed to both supporting the Moodle community and improving teaching and learning practice. Following Tom’s guidance and inspiration, Education Product Lead Bob McDonald, Curriculum Director Solange Lalonde, and Moodle’s Community Educator Mary Cooch have worked to make Tom’s vision a reality.
Gry Stene, Moodle Chief Product Officer said, “We are looking forward to continuing the collaboration with our Partners to empower educators both with freely available resources and research-based programs that provide certification pathways.”
