In the era of COVID-19, in-person professional development days have been few and far between, which means certified teachers in Pennsylvania and elsewhere need to be proactive to get in their professional development credits. One viable solution is online courses that allow teachers to get credit for professional development without the need to attend an in-person session, deal with social distancing and mask-wearing, or even get out of their pajamas.
How Do 3-Hour Online Courses Work?
Three-hour online courses are simple to access. Teachers can readily download them to their home computers and complete all coursework from the online learning portal. Upon completion of their chosen courses, teachers receive completion certificates to submit to their local employers, and their hours earned are reported to their PA Department of Education accounts.
Helping Teachers Stay in Compliance
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 mandates that certified teachers satisfy PA common core standards for professional development (minimum of 180 credit hours), regardless of the pandemic of 2020. Online courses help teachers stay in compliance with all requirements while developing their careers professionally and giving them skills that they can integrate into their classrooms. Classes are ideal not just for certified teachers who are currently working in the classroom but also for those who are not currently employed but wish to maintain their teaching licenses.
