Get Smart: Two Free Online PD Opportunities

Yes, we can fly off to conferences, and yes, we have our in-house Fall Conference PD opportunity, but what if you just want to sit in your pajamas and learn online? You are in luck! Two opportunities are available. But, especially for the first one, you have to act fast. Here they are:
Michigan Academic Literacy Learning Community: Using Reading Apprenticeship
Michigan Center for Student Success is excited to partner with Reading Apprenticeship at West Ed this fall to present a series of virtual workshops focused on using Reading Apprenticeship as a framework. This document includes more information about content, dates and materials.
Workshop participants will discover how to help students engage their prior knowledge to understand and organize information within a conceptual framework. Faculty who complete all four workshops will have the opportunity to plan, execute and reflect on text-based lessons that engage students in metacognitive inquiry.
Sessions will take place on Friday afternoons beginning September 27 from 3:00-5:00 using Zoom. The workshops are open to full-time and adjunct faculty from any discipline. There is no cost to enroll. Registration is available now through September 26 and is limited to the first 24 participants.
Webinar: Authentic Assessment, Performance Based Assessments, Constructive Response Assessments…Oh My! 
October 23, 2019, 11 am -12pm
Using a variety of assessments can be challenging in an online learning environment. During this discussion we will define different types of assessments, how to use assessment to inform teaching and learning, identify strategies to evaluate student learning, and explore examples of a variety of assessment techniques and tools. Presenter: Darci Duran is the Director of Instructional Design at Colorado Community Colleges Online.  Register here.

    Thanks! I just registered for the Authentic Assessment one–looks really good! I’d love to do the reading apprenticeship one but that time doesn’t work for me. I’ll hopefully hear from colleagues about it, though!
