The following is a message from Ysabel Ramirez, grant director of the Texas Success Initiative Professional Development Program, which is funded by the Coordinating Board. It concerns three opportunities for professional development. Contact information is provided at the conclusion of the message.
The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) Professional Development (PD) Program (funded by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board) is proud to announce the first in a series of online professional development opportunities. The module, Instructionally Appropriate Technology Integration, includes a video, resources, handouts as well as implementation and reflection activities to be completed for acquiring/earning professional development hours. There is no cost for this training; however, registration is required if the participant wants a certificate for professional development credit hours. The link to the registration site and activity sheet can be accessed by clicking on the module title above.
In addition, our program is also currently recruiting individuals for Training of Trainers on Integrating Technology into the Developmental Education Classroom. Applicants will be trained as trainers for integrating technology in the developmental education classroom. Travel costs will be covered by TSI-PD; however, you must apply to be considered for participation. Contact Ysabel Ramirez at email@example.com for more information or to receive application information.
Finally, TSI-PD is collaborating with McLennan Community College to provide a day of training on Contextualization. The Contextualization Summit: Finding Common Ground event is being held on Saturday, January 30, 2016 in Waco, TX. There is no registration cost for attending this event; however, registration is required. Please click here for the flyer and agenda and/or to register for the event.
Please feel free to share this email with your colleagues and staff. If you have any questions on any of these professional development opportunities, please contact Ysabel Ramirez at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
