Become a Trailblazer!

Morgan Paese

OnCourse Communications

You are invited to join an exclusive cohort of extraordinary educators called OnCourse Trailblazers. Becoming a Trailblazer brings visibility to your best work, unlocks exciting perks, and gives you a chance to be the Trailblazer of the Year, an accomplishment that comes with a $1000 grant to attend an education conference of your choice.

What’s a Trailblazer?

An OnCourse Trailblazer uses technology in innovative ways to make a difference in their individual work or across their district.

Trailblazers forge their own paths inside the OnCourse ecosystem. They find shortcuts that save valuable time, discover high-impact ways to use data, or guide others in improving their practices.

Whether you are moving mountains or making things a little more streamlined in your district, we want to celebrate it.

Learn about why we started this program in 2023 from Tyra and Morgan!


How to Become a Trailblazer

Please review the application and submit it by January 25th to be considered. Up to 6 applicants will be selected to join the 2024 cohort.

Open topics will be accepted to encourage users with a variety of skills to submit meaningful projects. Here are a few examples across different departments: 

  • Building a tech-enhanced assessment that improves the student experience 
  • Rebuilding a schedule to better meet student needs 
  • Using data to design effective interventions 

What to Expect

The purpose of the OnCourse Trailblazer is to inspire and guide others to be their most effective selves, supported by technology.

Each selected educator will be a featured speaker at a Trailblazer webinars hosted and promoted by OnCourse. This webinar gives you a chance to showcase your work to a greater audience. This webinar will be recorded and shared in OnCourse’s training portal and on social media pages.
