What is MyPD?

What if you could take all the time that you spend informally researching educational strategies (e.g., reading blogs and articles, watching YouTube videos or participating in Twitter chats) and formally honor this time commitment with SCECHs? Now you can! MyPD is a vehicle to formally honor educators’ informal learning efforts. In this course, you will define your problems of practice, create a plan to address them and receive valuable feedback from our professional learning coaches.

Forge Your Own Path, Tell Your Own Story

  • Tying a specific learning objective to evidence of informal learning pursuits
  • Reflecting on learning from those pursuits
  • Developing an action plan based on the professional implications that have emerged
