Updated OLAC Modules Launched

At the Ohio Leadership Advisory Council (OLAC), we're proud to offer more than 20 online learning modules on a variety of topics, allowing educators at all levels to experience anytime, anywhere professional learning.

Every year, approximately one-third of these learning modules are updated. This process ensures that the research is current and the information and tools within the modules better meet the needs of those doing the work.

Just in time for the 2016-2017 school year, three of the seven modules being updated this year have just been posted.

In these modules, and the others that will be updated throughout the coming school year, you'll see updates to the research supporting this important work. Tools and resources that you can use right away are highlighted and new tools have been added. Pay attention to the highlighted Foundational Concepts that have been added to extend information about critical topics in educational leadership. New activities have also been added to increase shared understanding among faculty and staff.

In addition, all of the modules and webinars now have certificates that may be downloaded and presented to your local LPDC. Finally, you may provide input to us regarding each module by clicking on the survey button at the end. The feedback from these surveys is used to help inform future updates and improvements to the modules.

As we're getting ready to start the new school year, don't forget to follow us on Twitter at @OHEdLeadership for OLAC news and updates.

Also, save the date for the 2016 OLAC Action Forum on Tuesday, Dec. 13 at the Ohio Union at the Ohio State University.

We've posted a nomination form for the 2016 Outstanding District Award on our website. If you know of a district doing great work using OLAC tools, please consider nominating them for this award. The Outstanding District Awardee will be recognized at the 2016 OLAC Action Forum.

Here's to a great end to the summer and start of the school year!
