XMA Apple Professional Learning Sessions starting 29th June 2021.
For professional services staff and teaching staff across the University.
Apple Teacher is a free professional learning program designed to support educators. It builds confidence in educators and allows them to get the very best out of their devices for learning, teaching and productivity.
When you sign up to Apple Teacher, you can access a wealth of materials including Top Time Saving Tips for teachers, Everyone Can Create, Everyone Can Code as well as a full set of self-paced courses in iPad Basics and use of the Apple Suite of native apps. Working in partnership with the XMA Learning Team, we have put together a series of Apple Professional learning sessions, which will are aimed at guiding staff and students through the Apple Teacher courses. Leigh Milligan, Nicola Paterson, Stuart Cheyne & Chris Gerrard will be delivering these sessions 2 days a week from June – August 2021.
This compliments the Apple Round Table sessions and resources, previously run with staff and students at Teesside University. Each APL session is a 2 hour hands-on learning experience which includes time demonstrating and practicing skills needed to pass the Apple Teacher badges. There will also be opportunities to sign up to the Apple Teacher Learning Centre, to ask questions and get support and feedback.
All of this is done through Microsoft Teams. You can, of course, sign up to Apple Teacher in your own time and work through the courses and badges at your own pace by going to: https://appleteacher.apple.com/#/ auth/sign-in
