The Benefits of Online PD

Choosing online professional development is a great way to save both time and money. Though some educators are initially wary of receiving their training online, they soon discover that the benefits readily outweigh the barriers that come with learning behind a screen.

A few benefits of taking online PD include:

1. Online courses offer flexible access for busy instructors who prefer to have 24/7 access to instructional materials.

2. The versatility of these courses allows for large-scale learning opportunities without sacrificing the quality of the learning experience.

3.Given the significant shortage of substitutes in Michigan, these courses help keep educators where they matter most: in the classroom.

Here are a few different types of SCECH-bearing courses we offer to educators:

MyPD

Because you deserve credit for your informal learning, too!

10 SCECHs for $30

Educators today are agents of their own learning, engaging in informal networks and independent pursuits for personal growth and development. Michigan Virtual’s MyPD is a vehicle to formally honor educators’ informal learning efforts.

Through this SCECH-bearing experience, educators will engage in a process to tell the story of their independent learning journey, tying a specific learning objective to evidence of informal learning pursuits, reflecting on learning from those pursuits, and developing an action plan based on the professional implications that have emerged.

Sign up for MyPD by May 1 to receive your SCECHs in time for the June 30 deadline!
