Professional Development and Graduate Credit

K-12 Online Conference organizers are pleased to announce the availability of both professional development and graduate credit options for our 2007 conference.

Graduate development is again available (on a paid basis) from Plymouth University.

For the first time (pending recognition of K-12 Online by your local school or district) FREE professional development credit is available for conference participants. This past week, members of the professional development committee updated the recommended rubric (now available in multiple formats) for professional development reflections. To further explain this process, committee members have also created a VoiceThread digital story.

Conference participants will be able to electronically register for professional development and submit individual conference session reflections (as URL links or copied text) to the conference PD reflection archive starting next week, on Saturday, October 20, 2007.

Check out both the VoiceThread explanation as well as the entire K-12 Online Conference Credits wiki for more details. Members of the PD committee hope the provided rubric will assist you in reflecting on and benefiting from the different presentations in this year’s conference, as well as obtaining professional development credit for your participation in the conference.

A “printable” certificate including details of your participation and awarded credit for each session in the K-12 Online Conference will be available from the conference PD reflection archive, starting on October 20th.

    Hi Wes,

    Just a slight naming correction, we’re Plymouth State University.

    I’m looking forward to seeing how this years K-12 Online Conference has evolved from last years conversations!

    Thank you so much for offering this professional development credit option. I think it will be very appealing to teachers in AZ who need to accrue re-certification hours to renew their teaching certificates. I plan to forward this page to lots of people. FYI-There is one link on the expectations page that doesn’t link to the correct URL. (Full information regarding the questions and the processes to be followed may be found online at http://k12onlinecredit.wikispaces.com.) It takes you to a new wikispace page. It’s fantastic to see Terry Freedman and Wes Fryer together promoting this opportunity–captures the world-wide nature of the conference. Thanks!
