Utah Education Network offers professional development specifically for school leaders including principals, assistant principals and executive directors. Our PD focuses on leadership and technology integration in your schools and is offered through online courses, in-person summits, videos and podcasts.
Online Courses for School Leaders
UEN offers a unique course catalog specifically for school leaders. Online courses are designed to be flexible and work with your schedule. Courses are 100% online and focus on leadership and technology integration principles. Courses are based on the Utah State Board of Education EdTech Competencies and are aligned with the Utah State Board of Education Strategic Plan, Utah’s Portrait of a Graduate, Utah’s Personalized Competency-Based Learning (PCBL) program and the High-Quality Instruction Cycle.
Leading Schools is a multi-day summit designed to provide principals with the inspiration, support and professional learning opportunities they need to lead student-centered PCBL learning initiatives in their schools.
Education Technology Endorsement for School Leaders
Utah Education Network offers an EdTech endorsement path specifically for school leaders. Participants will become equipped with the necessary tools to create a culture and environment where high-quality instruction will flourish. By earning this competency-based endorsement, leaders will have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge and learn from peers while creating a plan for strengthening their school learning community.
The full EdTech Endorsement for Schools Leaders will require the completion of four online, competency-based courses. Each course will align with one of the Utah EdTech Endorsement Competencies Strands for educators as follows:
- Foundations of Instructional Design for School Leaders
- Developing 21st Century Learners
- Digital Citizenship and Information Literacy
- Professional Growth and Leadership or Leading Schools Summit
