03 Aug INNOTECH, ASCD FORGE AHEAD WITH PD EXCELS ONLINE
A mixed brand of professional online learning program may soon be offered to school leaders in Southeast Asia—a fruition of the partnership between SEAMEO INNOTECH and ASCD.
Tagged as “PD eXCELS Online,” this unique course will combine the features of the Center’s flagship flexible learning program with some of ASCD’s online professional development courses.
ASCD has a massive list of professional development (PD) courses offered online and equivalent to 20 training hours per course. SEAMEO INNOTECH’s Excellence in School Leadership for Southeast Asia (eXCELS), on the other hand, serves as the base of its flexible learning programs delivered in blended modality. Each eXCELS course is equivalent to 54 training hours.
The mechanics of the PD eXCELS Online should be clarified once SEAMEO INNOTECH completes a review of ASCD’s 77 publicly-offered courses and determine which will complement best its eXCELS flexible learning program.
