Full course description
The Remote Teaching Excellence (RTE) Project is designed as a series of monthly webinar workshops and a community of practice to support select teachers in PG County Public Schools in implementing best practices in remote and hybrid teaching strategies.
This professional learning course is anchored to Danielson’s Framework for Remote Teaching and the International Society for Technology Education (ISTE) Standards and the Emergency Remote Teaching (ERT) Framework. This course starts with a foundational workshop, which focus on effective virtual and hybrid Classroom Organization. Remaining sessions focus on the following: Tech Theory; Engagement, Social Emotional Learning/Trauma-informed ERT Practices, and Assessing Learning. The Communities of Practice (CoP) model is used to enable deeper analysis and application, through small group sharing, of the session topics.
PGCPS teachers who enroll in this course will be positioned to be technology pioneers who bring best practices back to their school environments. Participants in this course will be provided with new strategies and tools to help foster student engagement and learning in virtual and hybrid classrooms, as well as other resources and instructional materials. Teachers who attend the workshops as well as CoPs, and who complete the required asynchronous assignments, will be eligible to receive 1 UMD continuing education credits.
