The North TIER Partnership is a consortium of 13 Northern Virginia school divisions, CRSTE, Germanna Community College, ETLO and MHz Networks to provide online professional development opportunities for
educators in the state of Virginia, the Capitol Region and beyond.
These courses, which are project- and standards-based, include seven online sessions. An instructor trained and certified by EdTech Leaders Online facilitates each course, using a learning model that combines readings and videos, activities, and facilitated peer-to-peer collaborative discussions. The focal point of the sessions is online discussion and collaboration, where you can share your ideas, reflections, comments, and questions with your classmates.
Recently North TIER partnered with Colorado State University to provide graduate credit for the technology-infused courses. (Note: Not all courses qualify for graduate credit.)
