The NC Department of Public Instruction, in partnership with the Friday Institute at NC State University and area RESAs, are pleased to offer educators in North Carolina a comprehensive and layered professional learning approach to support digital teaching and learning in NC classrooms.

This summer, we launched the Digital Learning Competencies for Teachers through our professional learning events across the state. The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction’s Digital Teaching and Learning Division is collaborating with area RESAs to provide additional professional learning opportunities. These sessions will support school districts with the planning and implementation of the Digital Learning Competencies. For this school year, sessions will be held in November, January, and April/May. Team Leaders from the summer sessions will be notified with specific dates, locations, and to verify team members.
