Hapara Champion Program
Develop skills and expertise in next-generation instructional practices.
At Hapara, we believe that meaningful, pedagogy-driven professional learning and outcomes-driven edtech integration produce positive educational transformation. The Hapara Champion Certification program is designed for educators and educator-leaders who are responsible for teaching, supporting, guiding, coaching and mentoring classroom teachers.
Applications for the next round are due November 14, 2018. The next cadre begins November 26, 2018.
The Hapara Champion Program is our tried-and-true way to deepen educators’ Hapara skills and encourage engaging, instructional use.
The Hapara Champion Program is a leveled trio of online courses designed to quickly–but thoroughly–teach educators how to use Hapara, and give them opportunities to practice and reflect on their classrooms. It’s our best way of showing folks not just how to use Hapara but how to use it to support a positive, student-centered, 21st century classroom.
Since its launch in 2015, the Hapara Champion program has been a global success, with over 670 graduates around the world. Our Champions are district and regional leaders (and our pride and joy)!
The Champion courses must be completed in order: Educator, Scholar, then Trainer. All levels run for four weeks and are delivered through Hapara Workspace and a community board. Hapara Champion Educator is designed so you can learn and do the work on your own time (although we offer a helpful suggested timeline). The Champion Scholar and Champion Trainer courses are significantly more dependent on group feedback, so deadlines exist–but the work can be done on your time.
Certification is designed for current Hapara users, but there are some circumstances where we allow non-Hapara users to join. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
