CoSN is pleased to offer the first-ever education technology leader project management course that focuses on the unique needs and challenges of school system technology leaders. Using thought leadership resources and best practices, this course is aligned to CoSN’s Framework of Essential Skills for the K-12 Chief Technology Officer (CTO), the foundation for the nationally-accredited Certified Education Technology Leader (CETL) Program. Its structure and content are also based on the Project Management Institute’s A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Sixth Edition – a global industry standard for project management and the most widely recognized project management model for business and government.
This seven-week course provides participants with high-quality, practical and wide-ranging protocols and resources that empower responsive and scalable project management practices. Course content references effective methodologies rooted in research and correlated to the K-12 environment through a practical lens.

The pedagogical approach in the design of this course offers learners rich content, including prerecorded class instruction that may be viewed before online class sessions. This approach provides greater opportunities to learn in a dynamic, interactive learning environment where project management concepts may be applied to current education projects that are underway or planned soon. As a result, class learners are actively involved in knowledge construction that is personally meaningful and can be used in their current job.

Oct 18th – Nov 29th, 2022
All classes are Tuesdays 2:00 – 3:30 ET
*Sessions are recorded if you are unable to attend on a particular day.
