Our Teaching and Learning Through e-Learning Qualification Program (TLTEQP) – for Administrators is designed for current and aspiring educational leaders. With a leadership lens, the program takes candidates on a journey through current theory and trends in educational technologies and online learning. It introduces a variety of pedagogical and policy-related factors that need to be considered to effectively lead and support digital learning and teaching. To ensure that the endeavor is both practical and beneficial, candidates are challenged throughout the program to apply learning, where possible, to their local contexts and current or future portfolios.

Through program content and tasks involving exploration, collaboration, networking and application, candidates will examine

  • e-Learning and global competencies
  • digital identity, citizenship, skills and tools
  • learning spaces
  • professional learning networks
  • provincial and local policy (as they relate to educational technologies and online learning) and
  • equity / diversity / inclusion, mental health and special education.

There is no refund for cancellations after the start date.


A full refund applies when a session is cancelled due to low enrollment. 

Interpretation Services
The Ontario Principals' Council® (OPC) is committed to accommodating the individual needs of our Members, in accordance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) and the Ontario Human Rights Code. Once a candidate has registered and paid the applicable registration fees for a course, the OPC will contract with an interpretation service of its choosing and will cover the fees and expenses related to interpretation services in accordance with its contract arrangements with the interpreter. The candidate is welcome to provide a list of preferred interpreters for us to consider, but OPC retains the discretion to choose the provider of these services.

As the OPC is required to comply with the cancellation policy specific to each independent interpreter, it will communicate the cancellation policy to the course candidate in writing. A candidate seeking to cancel their participation in an OPC course must comply with the interpreter’s cancellation policy and be respectful of the associated timelines. Candidates will be held responsible for cancellation fees applied as a result of missing timelines for cancellation.

OPC’s standard refund policy will also apply to all cancellations. 

Program Resource Access
All program content and LMS access will be available to candidates one week in advance of the program and will remain active until two weeks after the end of the program. Following this period, candidates will no longer have access to assignments, conversations, resources or other content related to the program. Please save any information that you would like to retain during the timeframe that you have access to the LMS. Limited extensions to program access will only be granted under special circumstances, as approved by the Registrar or Director of Professional Learning.
