Virtual Learning PD Opportunity - March 31 through April 12
We know our campus professionals are hard at work using all their technology knowledge to move our learning environment to a virtual platform. To recognize everyone's implementation of their technology learning, we are offering an opportunity to earn professional development district credit. Alief U participants will earn this district credit in the category of Meaningful Work.
The link below takes you to the instructions on how to earn the credit as well as examples for a variety of levels and content areas.If you are a CAMPUS PROFESSIONAL and are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity, please be aware that it is time sensitive. It starts "after work" on Tuesday March 31 and ends on Sunday April 12.
Due to the school closure March 13 – May 3, 2020, all professional development sessions have been canceled through that time period. More information will be provided as it becomes available. Thank you for your patience.
Take good care.

There have been some changes to Eduphoria recently. To register for Professional Development sessions select Strive after you log in and then select Available Courses. You can sort by date or alpha by course title. You can also search by Categories which is below the Credits search area, or you can close the Credits search area. Categories are only available if there is a course attached to that specific Category. Below is a link to a document with more detailed instructions and screen shots to help you navigate the new look of the system.
PurposeThe goal of the Professional Development Department is to increase student achievement by providing a rich variety of brain-friendly learning resources for all Alief staff members. Teachers who know more have students who know more. A big part of a teacher's job is to continuously learn and become an even better teacher for even more students.
