Spring 2022 CETL Study Group

Sign up by March 15 to join this cohort!

We are offering our Texas Education Technology Leaders (TETL) an opportunity to participate in our Spring 2022 Certified Education Technology Leader (CETL) study group. We will start the 3rd week of March, after Spring Break. Sign up HERE to participate.

Members of the group will take a deep dive into the knowledge and skills outlined in the Framework of Essential Skills of the K-12 CTO, the foundation of the CETL Certification program.

  • The study group will meet in an online one-hour conference call for 10 weeks, covering one skill area each week.

  • Each week, a member from the study group will facilitate a class, rotating through the group so the work of studying the materials is shared.

  • The study group will decide on a day and time of the week to conduct the class, once the study group members are identified. We will strive to accommodate everyone’s schedule.

Join your peers to learn about the body of knowledge required to be a successful EdTech leader and work in a team with others to help prepare yourself for the exam! Whether you are a veteran technology leader or an aspiring EdTech leader, this group will be a great professional learning experience.  

The study group is a benefit for being a member of the Texas Education Technology Leaders group and is at no charge to you. You will need to purchase access to the online study materials from COSN here before the study group begins.
