21Things4Teachers: Blending Instruction (30 SCECHs)

The “things” will be grouped into three central themes: Teacher Development and Productivity, Blending Instruction, and Differentiating Instruction and Assessment. 21Things4Teachers: Blending Instruction will kick-off with a face-to-face session at the CCISD on Friday, June 19 from 10 a.m. -12:30 p.m. and will continue online through August 20.
Fee: $100 (includes book and SCECH fee)

Blended Instruction with Moodle (10 SCECHs)
Learn how to get started with using Moodle for blended instruction.

This session will be conducted at the CCISD on Tuesday, June 30 from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. and will be the second time the CCISD Moodlers will be meeting this year!
Fee: Free*
