RECERTIFICATION CREDIT AND TEACHING ENDORSEMENTS

We are making it easier than ever for educators to access courses for recertification or to move over on the pay scale! CPD adds new courses every day with affordable and convenient options to fit every teacher’s busy schedule. All of our credits count toward the credits needed for teacher recertification, and each PD credit is graduate level, non-degree seeking.

Innovative Instruction
H.A.C.K. Model

The H.A.C.K. Model of Innovative Instruction is designed to move a classroom from a Highly Structured environment to a student-centered environment where students take ownership and personalize their learning. The H.A.C.K. Model builds teacher capacity to become the facilitator of learning and transfer ownership to students. In a classroom where the H.A.C.K. Model is implemented, students will build capacity and independence to become self directed PBL learners.
