Fisher Course Helps Teachers Master Best Practices in Online Education
**NOTE: The January 2021 Session has been postponed.**
Early next year, the St. John Fisher College Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. School of Education will offer a four-week training course for teachers focused on best practices for online education.
The training, “Online Teaching and Learning in the K-12 Classrooms,” offers primary and secondary school teachers best practices for online education and will sharpen their use of technology, preparing them for any modality of teaching. The course will run from Monday, Jan. 4 through Sunday, Jan. 31.
The course is comprised of four modules that cover online design, strategies and methods for content delivery and assessment, tools that foster interaction among students, and technology tools available to teachers. The modules are intended to be completed in five hours, and include asynchronous interactive work, Zoom sessions, and participation in discussion boards, allowing the cohort to build community and share and learn from each other.
Completion of course will earn participants 20 Continuing Teacher Learning Education (CTLE) credits, each individual module totaling five CTLEs. Participants will also receive a certificate of completion from Fisher.
The four-module series is $270; Fisher alumni can receive 10 percent off using the coupon code FISHER-ALUMNI. Register online at https://next.sjfc.edu/pdc. For questions, email Dr. Joellen Maples at firstname.lastname@example.org.
