The Digital Teaching and Learning Division at the NCDPI have created virtual professional learning courses that align to the DLCs for Teachers. These courses were created in Canvas, but can be imported into a district’s learning management system.

These courses are structured using a competency-based model, where learning activities result in participants demonstrating evidence of achievement of specified outcomes. Using the NCDPI DLC courses, participants will demonstrate mastery of each DLC focus area through artifacts. The self-assessment enables teachers to consider their current levels of understanding and experience in each focus area. The level progression for each focus area includes: Novice, Experienced, and Mastery.

If a district decides to use these DLC virtual courses as designed, district reviewers would need to be selected to review artifact submissions. Additionally, a district could investigate using micro-credentialing as part of a competency-based route to licensure renewal.

Resources for DLC-Administrators are currently being created by NC school-level administrators, and will be shared with districts when completed.




We are excited to announce that the NC Digital Learning Competencies for Teachers courses have been placed in the NC Canvas Commons!
