Professional development is a key part of a teacher’s career. Many districts require teachers to attend professional development regularly that may or may not be provided at the district or school level. I love opportunities when I can select a topic. I love virtual teacher professional development opportunities because I can learn from the location of my choice.
If you ask any of my colleagues they would tell you I often wander off during in-person professional development because it is not always relevant to my teaching assignment. Nothing is more frustrating than sitting through a full day of professional development devoted to a subject area or a grade level you do not teach.
If you are a middle or high school teacher and interested in using podcasts in your classroom check out this free teacher professional development opportunity.
Is this free workshop a good fit for you?
Ask yourself these two questions:
- Teachers do you want to try using podcasts with your students, but are not sure where to start?
- Maybe you already use podcasts, but want more ideas on how to use them with your students?
If you answered yes to either of those questions then this workshop is for you.
