What is Instructional Tech at Reclaim Hosting?
Starting in 2022, Reclaim Hosting is excited to introduce an Instructional Technology team and professional development offering that is both an extension of the work we’ve done over the last 9 years and a step towards work we want to build upon.
Instructional Technology at Reclaim Hosting provides regular opportunities to work within a community of curious educational technologists to explore how to make the best use of a variety of technologies. Reclaim Hosting has always set out to equip the edtech community with the infrastructure, resources, and support they need to learn, grow and succeed in the classroom and beyond. With this intentional community network, we are thrilled to now have the capacity to do this work on a larger scale.
The Professional Development subscription will be made available to all, regardless of hosting projects with Reclaim Hosting. Within this first year, the Professional Development subscription will be tailored to folks running Domain of One’s Own, WordPress Multisite, or Reclaim Cloud projects, and will include consistent Workshops, rotating Flex Courses, and a myriad of ways to engage with other like-minded institutions.
Each workshop runs for 1-2 days and offers different topics within Domain of One's Own and WordPress Multisite. There are two workshops offered throughout the year:
- “Beginner” Workshops every Fall semester for DoOO & WPMS
- “Advanced” Workshops every Spring semester for DoOO & WPMS
