June 20 - July 10, 2016 It certainly is SUMMERTIME!
Summer PD Launch
We kicked off the sessions with EduPaths Minute-to-Win-It challenges, and moved into a series of mini-clinics through the rest of the day. The mini-clinics highlight the major components of EduPaths course development and walk participants through to successful completion in Storyboarding, Scripting and Recording. Participants can self-select the sessions they need - some need little direction, others need a lot of support. Work time was also provided during the 2 day session which allowed participants to collaborate and focus on their own projects. Feedback from one participant - "Work time built in was wonderful (and necessary), particularly with all of you there to answer our questions on the spot! :) Thanks for all of your support!"
Courses are coming in from participants in our earliest sessions. Solid work & very interesting content!!
Next week we will be in Alpena and Wayne County. So many good ideas for courses are on the docket for development at these sites, and we look forward working with participants as they use the process to complete their projects.
If you are interested in joining us this summer and have an idea you would like to share with other educators statewide, check out the Summer PD opportunity. We have availability at a few of our sites, but you will need to register soon!
