The Digital Pedagogy Skills Course is offering practical digital skills to teachers, lecturers, teaching professionals and trainers of trainees in facilitating digital learning.This course will help teachers and all educators in the purposeful application of new technologies to enhance teaching and learning using ICTs.It will help you as a teacher transform how you approach and think about teaching using available ICT for education tools in order to amplify learning and develop your own digital learning materials, improve your content access & interactivity while keeping your value in the education cycle at the top level.New ‘Digital’ Pedagogies have emerged which  have shifted the focus of teaching away from teaching to learning, content delivery to interaction, face-to-face towards an online, interactive, constructionist pedagogy, which can be led by the student, as much as the teacher.
