Equipping NH Educators - Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA)

RFP #Higher Ed-2021-1

Beginning in March 2020, in response to the COVID pandemic, schools, teachers and students pivoted to remote instruction and support with virtually no notice or training. All of these stakeholders performed admirably given the difficult circumstances that they faced.  This disrupted learning continued in the summer and through the fall semester, and will continue to impact learning in the spring of 2021. Over the period from March 2020 until now, schools, teachers and students have increased their capacity to instruct and learn successfully in a virtual setting. This has not been easy for our teachers, most of whom have been formally trained for in-person instruction and have not had formal training on how to conduct on-line instruction.  While it is expected that by September 2021 – if not sooner – the effects of the pandemic will have subsided sufficiently to return to in-person instruction, we have all seen the importance and value of teachers having the skills to conduct on-line instruction.

Over the summer of 2021, the NH DOE seeks to offer all New Hampshire educators formal instruction, to include some type of micro-credential, in the art of on-line instruction.  Toward that end, the NH DOE is seeking proposals from qualified vendors to conduct this statewide effort.

Deadline for Receipt of Proposals:  4:00 pm, February 26, 2021
