This blended learning course is designed to provide participants with an opportunity to develop an understanding of PLCs as a foundation for curriculum, assessment and instruction for the 21st century learner.
Created for learning coaches (teachers) at the National Inventors Hall of Fame® STEM Middle and High Schools, this course helped those individuals establish common knowledge and beliefs about teaching and learning. Based on the Ohio Standards for the Teaching Profession (the foundation for the new Ohio Teacher Evaluation System), this course facilitates an individualized learning path for each participant and builds an online learning community resulting in engaging, practical professional development that can be done in the comfort of your own home, at your convenience.
Additionally, no experience with online learning is necessary. Ideas presented in the class are used in a real classroom with real students every day. Lastly, although this class was the foundation for the STEM schools it can be applied to any teaching situation in any school.
