Teachers Seeking Professional Development

Do you want to improve your content knowledge and teaching skills, but need to do so at a time that works for your busy schedule?

Are you interested in becoming part of an eLearning community for teacher professional development?

eLearning Alabama is an excellent way to move forward on your own professional development responsive to your schedule and needs.

eLearning Alabama uses Web-based models to provide effective professional development that leads to gains in teachers’ content knowledge, improvement in their teaching practices and increases in the achievement of their students. Courses are FREE and completely online and take 6-weeks to complete. You will earn 3.0 CEUs (30 clock hours) or one ACLD-approved PLU for EDU55xx courses (with additional work).

eLearning Alabama courses consist of a one week online orientation followed by six weeks of academics. Each weekly session contains readings, activities, and discussion questions. Although there is no requirement to be online on any given day or at any given time, all weekly assignments must be completed within that week. The learning comes from the interaction of the eLearning community. Participants are expected to complete the reading and activity assignments, post their reflective thoughts on the weekly discussion question(s), read ALL the discussion posts of their classmates, AND reply to two or more of their classmates' comments. Each course also requires completion of a Final Project - one that can be used by the participant in classrooms. The project must be completed within 30 days of the course end date and may be a collaborative effort.
