Being an effective educator requires time! Educators strive to create lessons that effectively engage students; that requires time beyond what is allotted during the traditional school day. With the support of a professional development coordinator, educators will have the time to research, process and delve deeper into their curriculum and start the year fully prepared. This type of preparation allows educators to approach the school year ready, confident, and enthusiastic. EDUX 9940 allows educators to collaborate with other professionals, plan effective curriculum and create materials and resources to enhance teaching and learning. This course provides a great opportunity to work directly with your grade level or content area teams when you enroll together.
Our flexible course structure includes individualized time commitments, support from a Professional Development Coordinator, opportunities for collaboration and supportive face-to-face exit interviews. Throughout the course, participants will interact with a Dominican University of CA Professional Development Coordinator whose personal supervision guarantees the kind of accountability that your school district requires.
