The focus of the Community Engagement element of Course 5 is “to continue on your own to stay involved in the COETAIL community, build your own PLN, and collaborate with educators around the world.”
Although the blog post on this topic may not be done until later in the course, a plan on how to continue to engage with other educators will be important.

COETAIL Online 14 has started and these new COETAILers would appreciate additional comments on their blog posts. Please take a few minutes and take a look through some of their latest posts and share your experience and feedback.
And here are some examples of how a few COETAILers from COETAIL Online 12 engaged in their PLN communities and documented their experiences.
