Dr. Alan Peterson
PD for Working Teachers, Parts 1 - 6 (APD1011B)
The course is designed to increase the student’s competence as a teacher. The course (of the 6 Parts) will use a combination of resources available via EES’s on-demand, online library of best teaching practices. By registering for 1 credit (per Part) the student is obligating himself/herself to achieving improved teaching competency by:
- providing rationale for the path(s) selected,
- assessing one’s own current competency,
- monitoring one’s own improving competency, and
- developing a plan to continue the improvement of one’s own teaching competencies.
The student, in order to increase teaching competency via a combination of practice, modeling, and training, will:
- use EES’s and CDE’s resources, including best teaching practices video clips;
- participate in discussions with fellow teachers on topics of concern;
- self-reflect about the skills desired and those the student may acquire;
- develop a self- assessment of teaching competencies; and
- solicit and apply an external assessment of current competence, via
- an assessment of the student’s self-reflection, or
- a directed assessment of competence
by a minimum of two external sources – a supervisor, a peer, a student, the PD course instructor, or an individual of the student’s choosing.
The goal is to improve the student’s functionality as a teacher, not a deeper understanding of teaching. A deeper understanding is likely to occur; but that is not the focus.
One credit is assigned per Part (PD for Working Teachers: Parts 1-6 is comprised of 6 Parts; the equivalent of 6 individual one credit courses). Each part must include 15 hours of verified work.
Upon completion of the course (each of the 6 Parts) the student will:
- Identify those areas of his/her teaching performance that need correction or improvement.
- Construct a plan for correction and/or improvement that utilizes EES resources.
- Utilize the EES website to complete his/her planned correction and/or improvement.
- Write self-assessments of corrections and improvements applied in his/her classroom(s).
