PD for Me Weekly Webchats

EDUC 2000

Prairie Public’s PD for Me Weekly Webchat series is designed to help teachers like you explore resources, get inspiration, test ideas, and connect with like-minded educators - all from the cozy, convenient comfort of your home or classroom. These online chats feature area educators sharing a bite-sized overview of a resource, topic, or idea. Then it’s all about you: ask questions, collaborate and share with other attendees (as you're comfortable), and brainstorm how you might take that idea into your classroom. Attend chats that appeal to you. It’s PD for YOU when you need it. ​ Accumulate 15 hours for 1 credit.

 

NEW for 2019-20: Monthly Math and English chats! Live chats to help you connect to others teaching the same content as you.
