Outreach and Technical Assistance Network (OTAN) has a long history of providing professional development, resource and technical support to adult education agencies and educators for over 25 years. Services provided include online workshops and face-to-face training in promising practices for technology integration, online and blended learning resources and training, electronic collaboration, educational resources and much more. In keeping with changing technologies, new research and advances in professional development and in an effort to ensure our adult educators have access to quality professional growth, OTAN announces a new opportunity for adult education agencies, including their administrators and teachers, through the Digital Leadership Academy (DLAC). This new program will combine OTAN's previous Academies (Technology Integration Mentoring Academy and the Online Teaching Academy) and offer the program for a full two years to ensure agencies can meet projected goals.

The Digital Leadership Academy will assist agencies in meeting their technology integration, or online or blended teaching goals. The program is designed to be flexible in how agencies can best use the resources offered by OTAN to support their own agency goals. DLAC will be aligned to the Technology and Distance Learning Technology Plan filed by all WIOA funded adult education agencies.

  • Sweetwater Division of Adult Education
