FREE Virtual Class

November 2017 – April 2018



Feeling isolated as the only teacher in your subject/level at your school?  Frustrated with PD that feels meaningless and disconnected from your classroom?  From your students?  Looking for ways to integrate meaningful technology into your classroom?  This is your class.

The Virtual PLC class is a pilot course designed BY teachers FOR teachers and completed WITH teachers.  Teachers will join a cohort of teachers in the same content area (High School Science, 4th Grade, Social Studies, etc.) in order to share best practices, strategies, and resources.  Course topics will be determined by teachers and will explore their strengths as educators while developing and refining skills to improve student achievement.  Then, meeting virtually once per month, teachers will collaboratively share ideas, best practices, and resources around this topic.  Professional Development credit is available through VCSU and NDSU.  Class is FREE; credits extra.
