eLearning Delaware uses a Web-based model to provide effective professional development opportunities that lead to gains in teachers’ content knowledge, improvements in their teaching practices, and an increase in the achievement levels of their students. There is no $ cost associated with the eLDE online courses. The only “cost” is your time and effort. The courses are designed to take 3-5 hours per week or 30 hours total to complete (you will receive re-licensure hours upon successful completion). Plus, the courses are entirely online (no face-to-face sessions). Each facilitator-led course runs for seven weeks with an orientation week followed by 6 weeks of content where there are specific readings, activities, and an online discussion each week.
Registration (https://login.doe.k12.de.us) is currently open for the SUMMER 2014 session which runs from Wednesday, June 18, 2014 to Tuesday, August 5, 2014.
