Adobe Education Train the Trainer is a free, eight-week online course designed to equip K12 - Higher Ed education trainers worldwide with the knowledge and skills to successfully design and deliver effective, engaging professional development utilizing Adobe products.

Each week you will work through a series of  learning blocks: LEARN - EXPLORE - MEET + PLAN - MAKE - REFLECT. 

You will develop the key skills required to create engaging multimedia  content with Adobe’s products. Working with a collaborative community of educators, you will  explore the importance of creativity in education and apply best practices in adult learning theory and professional development design. At the end of the course, you will have a broad array of skills with Adobe products and a well-structured professional development plan that you can implement in your own classes and trainings.

Live Class 1 takes place at the following date and time: Tuesday June 20, 2017

We anticipate that successful completion of this course will require at minimum 75 hours of your time. After successfully completing this course, you will receive a digital credential that states that you successfully completed 75 hours of professional development. You may share this with others to demonstrate your achievement. The creation of content is a creative process so the amount of time you spend will vary.
