Phi Delta Theta’s Online Approach To Education
Phi Delta Theta realizes that education does not only occur in the classroom or at in-person conferences. With this in mind, PDT U, the Fraternity’s online education initiative was developed. Whether it’s Chapter Advisory Board certification, Phikeia education, officer certification, or simple on-demand presentations that cover a wide-variety of topics, the Fraternity’s goal is to use technology to further educate its membership.
PDT U is accessible through myPhiDeltaTheta. Simply log in to myPDT and click the PDT U link on your dashboard. You will be automatically logged in to PDT U from there.
Currently, all Phikeias, active undergraduates, Chapter Advisory Board members and Province Presidents have access to PDT U.
There is no sign up for PDT U. All you need to do is report member and officer information in OmegaFi, and everything else is automatic!
New and enhanced Chapter Advisory Board member programs are coming in early 2016.
CAB members will complete a series of 5-10 minute modules to complete the certification for their specialty area.
CAB members also have access to all other undergraduate programs as well.
In order to have access to PDT U, CAB members must be a registered adviser in our database. To see if you are registered as an adviser, view your chapter’s profile on the Fraternity website.
The Phikeia education module series consists of six 20-35 minute courses covering Phi Delt History, Famous Phis, Interfraternalism, Friendship, Sound Learning and Rectitude.
Reporting Phikeias through OmegaFi automatically creates their PDT U profiles and sets up their access.
There is no need to ‘sign up’ and there is nothing extra you need to do.
Test results and user data reporting access is given to Chapter Presidents, CAB Chairmen, and Phikeia Educators.
Officer certification consists of 20-30 minute online modules for the President, Vice President, Phikeia Educator and Treasurer. More courses coming October 2015.
Courses are available for all members interested in completing the training through the Course Catalog.
On-demand programs such as Media Training are offered for all members to take. The courses can be accessed by all members through the Course Catalog within PDT U.
All PDT U courses are available to all members through the Course Catalog. If a CAB Chairman wants to learn about Chapter Presidents, he can take the President certification. Aspiring Phikeia Educators can complete all the Phikeia education modules, etc.
Yes! CAB Chairmen, Chapter Presidents, and Phikeia Educators all have admin privileges to run reports and see course completions within their chapter.
