On July 21st at 10am the instructor will be available at the DCIU for you to come in and help get you started if you feel you need assistance. This is optional. You can also make another appointment.

The online workshop will contain instructor created video presentations, online resources, and other engaging materials.


How will I get credit?

Using the log in information from the management system we will be able to collect evidence that you were "virtually present". We will also ask that you participate in the online discussions.


Is there a grade?

You will not be graded on any work you do. You will be asked to participate in online discussions and mini assignments. You will get lots of feedback and coaching that you can utilize as you continue to integrate technology.


Why is the workshop being done online?

As you work hard in your classroom to provide "anytime anywhere" access to your students we want to empower teachers to experience the same benefits and accommodate their schedules.


My administrator is concerned with me taking a workshop online how do I address this?

Online, face-face, and blended you get out what you put in to the workshop. You can disconnect mentally when you are physically present just the same way you can disconnect when you are virtually present.
