Professional Development Opportunities through DPI


Fall 2016, Session 2- Instructor-facilitated Online Courses
Mark your calendars! Our second session of facilitated online courses will be open for registration soon. Below is the list of instructor–facilitated online courses being offered by Educator Effectiveness, NCDPI for the Fall Session 2. (Remember, that unlike these facilitated courses, our self-paced modules are always open for enrollment.) Our facilitated courses provide the opportunity to interact with peers and an instructor along with high-quality professional development.  They combine the flexibility of working from anywhere at any time, and the benefits of working with a cohort of peers.

Fall Session 2 courses will start Monday October 17. Registration for these courses will open October 3, 2016. Registration is limited to 35 participants per section.

Please note that this course is structured differently from the traditional instructor-led courses above. This course is designed for active, collaborative learners who are self-driven, motivated, flexible and enjoy sharing information and resources. There is less-instructor interaction and relies heavily on participant interactionIt focuses on using digital tools and strategies to support teaching and learning and enriching individuals’ knowledge through developing communities of practice across the state.  In this course, we will look at the 4Cs - Creativity, Critical Thinking, Communication and Collaboration; keystones for the 21st century classroom. This MOOClet:
  • Is learner-centered, focusing on participants’ professional needs in different disciplines and grade levels
  • Focuses on participants as creators of content as much as they are “consumers” of content
  • Involves extensive peer-to-peer communication
  • Includes a larger number of students than a typical facilitator-led course and less facilitator feedback.
These courses are available at no cost to North Carolina educators and will be facilitated by DPI professionals. The courses are completed entirely online. Participants are expected to meet all weekly deadlines in order to receive CEUs. Partial credit will not be given.  For a description of the courses and associated CEUs, and on information on how to register, visit our website https://rt3nc.org/
