Join Kathy Schrock and course designers Dean Shareski and Steve Dembo for a discussion about the changing state of professional development including the new EDGE Letter of Endorsement from Discovery Education and Wilkes University.  Requirements for ongoing PD are shifting within schools, and the options for learning are increasing rapidly.  Between degree programs, conferences, workshops and elearning events, there have never been more options for extending your own professional growth.  Schrock and her panel of experts will guide you through some of the best options out there and share insights into the new courses that they have recently created.  Questions to be answered include: 

How do teachers stay learn about new technologies and ways to incorporate them in the classroom?
What is the relationship between formal professional development and the recent growth of personal learning communities?
What types of professional learning can teachers use to get PD credit in their district and why would they choose one over another?

Schrock, Shareski and Dembo are all course designers for the Discovery Education and Wilkes University Instructional Media Masters Degree program, as well as the new EDGE Letter of Endorsement.  Whether you’re considering a master’s degree or you already have one and want to further your credentials, the Discovery Education EDGE provides a compelling career growth opportunity. By combining a forward thinking curriculum with existing and proven pedagogy, all under the guidance of an established leader in digital instruction,  this program will prepare you for the challenges and opportunities of an ever-changing, digital classroom.
