eNewsletter Launch

Hello Friends,


This week we launched our new EduPaths eNewsletter to a small group of people. In 3 days we had almost 1100 views. This inspired us to continue to reach out because we believe we have wonderful opportunities in store for Michigan educators! We will continue to send periodic updates to our EduPaths users because we want to keep you on top of what we are doing at EduPaths!


If it's been a while since you logged into the EduPaths website, there are a lot of new courses on the site. If you are just hearing about EduPaths now, we have a few things that you can tap into right away.


EduPaths offers professional learning courses that are online, self-paced, short, and FREE! State Clock hours (SCECHs) are also free, and the courses can be used for educator certification renewal.


Join EduPaths and take advantage of the opportunities that are available! Summer is a great time to kick back and learn from your lounge chair in your back yard or at the beach!!

Summer PD Opportunity - Check it out!!

EduPaths continues to increase the number of courses on our site by reaching out to Michigan educators. We believe that the best PD (strategies, activities, resources) comes from area educators - teachers, administrators and consultants at all levels and areas of expertise.

We are launching our Pilot Summer PD and are inviting educators to develop a 1-hour online professional development course. Consider joining us. You will be paid for the course you develop for EduPaths. Click the flyer below to learn more about this summer learning opportunity!

A few of our sessions have closed to new registrations, but we have 8 sites located around the state that are still accepting applications. Check out the sites and dates for these sessions. We hope to see you there!
