How long do the videos go for?
Each video is approximately 10 minutes long.
Can this contribute to my Professional Development Hours?
Most definitely. And for Australian teachers, this Online PD course can directly contribute to your mandatory annual professional development hours. It is designed to be part of the mandatory 50% of Professional Development that is sourced outside the school.
Will you provide a formal certificate specifying the number of PD hours?
At the end of the course you will receive a pdf document outlining the estimated Professional Development hours (if you complete all the components – watching the videos and completing the reflection questions). This is simply a guide and you will have to specify the exact components that you complete in full.
If I complete the Online PD program in full, how many Professional Development Hours would that be?
There are twenty videos, and each video is approximately 10 minutes long. There are 2 worksheets with reflection questions to accompany each video. I have estimated that the reflection questions, if completed in full, will take approximately 45 minutes to complete. So multiply that over 20 weeks and you have about an hour of professional per week. That totals 20 hours.
Do I have to complete all the reflection questions?
No, you don’t. It is up to you how much you would like to engage with the Online PD program. You may choose to answer only some of the questions. It is completely up to you.
Do I submit my answered reflection questions?
No. These are for your records only. They are designed to compliment the videos and give you an opportunity to reflect on and apply your learning.
Can I get an invoice sent to my school for payment?
Yes. All you need to do is click here and complete the details and an invoice will be sent to your school. Once payment has been received, those teachers who have registered will receive their welcome email to start their Online PD journey.
Can my school purchase multiple memberships?
Yes. In fact, schools often make the Online PD program a shared experience for teachers in their school by registering a group of teachers. Simply click here, select payment method (Buy Now or Send Invoice). Complete the online form, detailing the names of the teachers you would like to register, and an invoice will be sent to your school. Once payment has been received, those teachers who have registered will receive their welcome email to start their Online PD journey.
Is the Online PD for any teacher? Beginning or experienced? High school or primary? Permanent or casual relief/substitute?
Absolutely. The Online PD program has been designed with content to support teachers in their teaching journey, regardless of whether you are new or experienced or high school or elementary. It will help you to be even more effective as a teacher.
