A Guide to Professional Development and ProGOE Usage
Welcome to the ProGOE Press - Edition 5 September
Finalizing Pre-Planning PD
There have been several questions about how to finalize "online learning" when there is no sign in sheet. So here is a quick fix for documenting your participants. Once you have awarded all of the credit for teachers who have turned in an implementation plan, make sure to go back and remove anyone that was registered, but did not complete the implementation. Normally we would not remove participants, but it is acceptable to do so for online trainings. You can remove them over to the left of their name using the ACTIONS pulldown. Once the roster is only showing those who completed and received credit, you will go up to the top of the roster and in the white space RIGHT CLICK, then you will select PRINT. I would recommend printing it out in landscape. You will want to sign the top, write the date you recorded the credits, and then write ONLINE TRAINING at the top. You would keep all of the implementation plans, along with the coversheet for the next FIVE YEARS. Below you will find a short video tutorial on how to handle online training.
