ITI509 Leading Learning in ICT (8)


The goal of this subject is to prepare students to lead professional learning about ICT in education contexts. It does this using the Certified Technology Trainer (CTT+) international industry certification developed by the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA).   The CompTIA CTT+ certificate is a cross-industry credential providing recognition that an instructor has attained a standard of excellence in the training industry. Students in this subject will be prepared for the certification examinations which are based on a set of objectives designed to measure the core knowledge and skills that competent instructors must demonstrate to successfully implement a coaching course both in a classroom and a virtual classroom environment. Please note that the examinations themselves are not part of the subject.
