• Learn more about the Moodle Educator Certificate (MEC)

      The Moodle Educator Certification Program is a training and certification program developed by Moodle HQ and delivered by certified Catalyst IT Europe Facilitators. It is designed to improve online and blended teaching with Moodle, using the European Framework for the Digital Competence of Educators (DigCompEdu) as inspiration for its content.

      What is covered:

      Aimed at educators and learning technologists, the program consists of the following 6 courses:

        • Professional engagement - How do you stay relevant and interact with peers?

        • Digital resources - How do you source, create and share resources?

        • Teaching and Learning  - How do you ensure your learners understand the subject matter?

        • Assessment - How do you assess and feedback to your learners?

        • Empowering learners - How do you engage and motivate your learners?

        • Facilitating learners’ digital competence - How do you encourage your learners to hone their digital skills?

      The assessed tasks are really good opportunities to reflect on your current and past practice and think about what changes you can make in the future to increase your competency. They ask questions such as: How could you help others in each scenario? and When have you encountered this scenario and how did you proceed?
