Simplify: creative uses for eduphoria e-courses

February 10, 2011 § Leave a comment

Mendy Autry – Duncanville ISD (south of Dallas, 12k students)

In the room – quick poll, staff development challenges. Time is the biggest issue.

We can use these e-courses for required pd, i.e. Sexual harassment, blood borne pathogens. Cover state and federal mandates.

Copyrighted material – put it on intranet.

System doesn’t lie. They have e-courses and a deadline. If coursework isn’t finished by deadline, there is a f2f sessions teachers can go to.

Grant and stipend documentation
-date grant
-job specific stipends

A lot of the things we make teachers sit through on staff development days could be done via e-courses on their own time, freeing up time for them to choose other PD opportunities (and maybe allowing us to get in the door more on PD days)
