Course Description

The Mind Lab's Digital and Collaborative Learning and Teaching (DCTL) microcredential will help you gain knowledge about current education practices and enable you to assess teaching environments and incorporate relevant technologies and methods into classrooms through practice.

Teachers are becoming more aware of the changing demands of a digitally connected world. This is leading to a shift in how they teach and learn.

2018 UNESCO highlighted the importance of teachers having the competence to effectively integrate digital technologies into the curriculum. This will help learners develop 21st-century skills such as collaboration and critical thinking.

This microcredential will teach you how to incorporate emerging digital tools into innovative educational practices. The focus is on blended classroom practice, where face-to-face learning contexts are crucial to the pedagogy that works in tandem with online learning. This microcredential will help you to understand digital and collaborative learning in educational settings while also reflecting on current pedagogies.

It's crucial to adapt your teaching methods to the digital age and offer your students an exciting and innovative learning experience.

This microcredential will empower you to do exactly that, without the need for any extra equipment or technology you won't find in your average classroom. You'll be able to improve your ability to manage design and plan your teaching methods by learning practical skills like agile project management and how your classroom can innovate.

Modern technology allows students to learn in new ways.

This microcredential will equip you with a variety of tools and techniques that you can use to engage students, embed technology and collaborate in your classroom. This course will discuss the importance of gamification, integrating games into teaching methods, and how animation and code can be used to encourage cross-curricular digital learning.

The Mind Lab, an NZQA-registered education provider, is an award-winning institution. The Mind Lab uses a kaupapa Mazori method to ensure that students, facilitators, and researchers are at the center of their professional practice and research. Their philosophy and values are based on positive relationships between people and places.

They use the organisational kaupapa Mazori values as a driving force in their practice.

Since 2014, The Mind Lab has provided over 5000 NZ educators from 1330 schools with the skills and knowledge to meet the demands of modern learning environments.

Blended learning is an amalgamation of online and face-to-face learning. It doesn't need to be 50/50. You can divide it in any way that best suits your learning experience.

One competency-based summative assessment is at week seven, and one at week fifteen. These assessments will assess your digital skills. They will also help you reflect on what you have learned and how to incorporate it into your teaching.

Grading will take two weeks. When your grades are updated, you will receive an email notification. A digital certificate of credit achievement will also be sent within 4-6 weeks.

Yes, this microcredential has been approved and accredited by New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA). It aligns with level 8 of the New Zealand Qualifications Framework
