Welcome to the Online Professional Learning Community Module on:
The Quest for Learning: How to Maximize Student Engagement
This is an online course where teachers will work together to explore and understand how to plan for quest-based and personalized learning experiences.
Mike Fisher will be your facilitator for this online workshop.
Work contact information: (716)-731-6800 ext. 3757
Please don't hesitate to contact for anything that you may need!
Throughout this 10 day online study please feel free to share anything you have learned thus far and ask any and all questions so that everyone can learn together! The benefit of learning online is the flexibility of being able to learn and explore at your own pace, but it is expected that you stay on track each week in order for meaningful conversations to be had.
The last date and final day for submissions of this workshop is Friday, August 16th, 2019. I will submit all names for 10 credit hours upon completion of all your posts. Please be sure to fill out the course evaluation, which generates the list of names to receive certificates (as long as all tasks have been completed.) If you have any required forms that need to be filled out for your district I will be happy to get those sent back to you ASAP. It is your professional responsibility to participate in the workshop to the best of your ability in order to receive the 10 credit hours of PD. I ask that you make a meaningful comment at least once on your own for each post I create and respond to a minimum of one other person's comment per post.
Please feel free to give any feedback throughout this course and there will be a final course evaluation given in order to help me better help you! Thank you in advance!
