Online Teacher Training Program

OCENET pioneers two new online teacher training programs

At the beginning of the pandemic OCENET’s Program Director, Constantine Ioannou, and Program Manager, Kari Hanes, developed a training program for secondary teachers on CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) and delivered the program to educators from Madrid, Spain, throughout July 2021. The program was offered online and was the first OCENET teacher development and training program involving educators from the Spanish capital. There were 16 Spanish teachers who completed the 100-hour program. The teachers from Madrid participated in online sharing sessions with three OCDSB teachers as group work facilitators and presenters, along with two former OCDSB employees. It is anticipated that these teachers from Madrid will visit OCDSB schools in the Fall 2022.

About the same time, OCENET developed a comprehensive teacher training program around various topics and themes for teachers and principals with a particular focus on task-based learning. OCENET delivered a program to educators in Chengdu, China, throughout November 2020 on current practices in teaching strategies and assessment. This program with Chinese educators was supported by OCDSB contact teachers who led discussion groups to share ideas and best practices with the Chinese educators.
