"Premier" Online Professional Development
While I was working on the Teaching the Levees Project
, I came across this teacher professional development resource from PBS
Some of the online classes seem like a good alternative to expensive graduate school courses. For instance, you can take "Curriculum Mapping by Dr. Heidi Hayes Jacob"
(a TC Alumni and Adjunct Professor) at PBS TeacherLine for $195.00.
If you want graduate credits for the same course, there are two options. For an additional $130, Adams State College in Colorado
will give you two credits (total: $325). If you want the graduate credits to be from Indiana University
, you'll need to pay an addiitonal $453.10 (total: $648.10). Does anyone else find it problematic that the same course can cost three different amounts?
The situation above also highlights an interesting challenge for elite institutions like Teachers College where a two-credit graduate course costs $1950.
