FREE COURSES: WE’VE ADDED YOUR FAVORITE REMC COURSES TO NOVEMBER’S VIRTUAL COURSES LIST!
Due to pandemic-induced virtual and blended learning environments, two REMC Virtual Courses have been extremely popular this fall: “Making the Most of Your Google Classroom” and “Using SeeSaw to Inspire Learning.” These courses provide teachers with critical instruction for managing learning and connecting with students and families. Now we’ve scheduled them again in November to meet the demand for these courses.
The REMC Virtual Courses offer an easy, convenient way for teachers to connect and collaborate from the safety and convenience of home. The Virtual Courses are free, offer 10 free SCECHs when completed, and are open to all Michigan school personnel. There are no registration or SCECH fees because REMC SAVE’s vendor partners provide support for all REMC professional learning opportunities.
Twelve (12) courses are offered in November. Each course is open for three weeks and consists of two (2) one-hour “live” webinars that are recorded and available for viewing later, and eight (8) hours of resource review, assessment developments and written reflection.
