Summer Professional Development Opportunities

1. PLU ACLD 278

Technology Topics for 21st

Century Administrators:

Best Practices (PLUACLD 278)



Location: Auburn University Haley Center

LRC Classroom 3430

Date: June 16 & July 21

Time: 8:30 AM- 3:30 PM


Technology Topics for 21st Century Administrators: Best Practices is a hybrid professional learning group that provides both face-to-face and online content to support educational leadership in our students’ technological world. For this professional learning group, school leaders will review best practices and cutting-edge technology. They will also develop technology skills and strategies to better support their teachers and improve student achievement. Participants will discuss ideas and strategies with other leaders in the group and apply them to their own practice.


Collaboration in the 21st Century

Collaboration is essential for you as an administrator as we try to do more with less and maximize the use of our time. In this module participants examine synchronous and asynchronous collaboration. Participants will use some digital productivity tools to collaborate on a job-embedded task.


Enhancing and Maximizing a School’s Web Presence

Gone are the days of primarily communicating via printed media, which is out of date by the time the ink is dry. In this module participants will examine the essential elements of a school website and take a look at each school’s existing web presence. Participants will discuss social networking and explore resources to enhance a school’s website.


Leading and Learning in a Blended Learning Environment

Participants will investigate several blended learning models and learn what administrators can do to support classroom teachers as they struggle to integrate student-centered approaches in a technology-infused blended learning environment.

2. PLU ACLD 379

Leadership Capabilities in the 21st Century PLU ACLD 379


Location: Auburn University Haley Center

LRC Classroom 3430

Date: June 14 & July 19

Time: 8:30 AM- 3:30 PM


Leadership Capabilities in the 21st Century is a hybrid professional learning group that provides both face-to-face and online content to support educational leadership in our students’ technological world. As our classrooms today becomes more tech-centric and our students become more immersed in the world of technology it is important to examine how technology impacts teaching and learning. It is no longer enough to just provide the technology in our schools and institutions. It is imperative to examine the level of student engagement and how technology affects pedagogy and the delivery of content. The purpose of this professional learning unit is to develop leadership capabilities that guide and coach teachers in the effective integration of technology with the goal of developing student centered learning. The essential question we ask ourselves is, “how can administrators best support teachers in the immersion of technology into a standards based curriculum?” School leaders will review best practices and use cutting edge technology to guide teachers in the effective integration of technology and provide appropriate support for developing strategies for student centered learning. Participants will discuss ideas and strategies with other leaders in the group and apply them to their own practice.

Alabama Technology in Motion Specialists will facilitate two professional learning group meetings (six hours per meeting), and participants must attend all meetings and participate in all online activities. Meeting topics are as follows: Examining the SAMR model of technology integration (substitution, augmentation, modification and redefinition,) Examining and Transforming Student Learning, and Supporting Teachers in the Development of Student Centered Activities. In addition to attending group meetings members will meet online to complete technology explorations, digital readings and participate in discussion forums. Each administrator must complete an action plan for each face-to-face meeting topic.
