Ashland Credit

Credit for Job Embedded PD

Job embedded PD recognizes your work as an instructor on a team by rewarding you with credit hours.

Credit hours are awarded to individuals who work with a team to develop common instructional plans, study and implement high-impact research-based instructional strategies, or address an instructional challenge. For example, a team can work on common assessments to get data that will help them modify instruction to improve student learning. The team might examine formative and summative assessment data, samples of student work, classroom artifacts, and personal reflections to determine how to assist struggling students and provide enrichment for those who have mastered the content. The goal of this endeavor is to award credit for learning together as a team as you solve the everyday problems and challenges of teaching practice.

Step 1 – Create an Action Plan using this template. Submit the Action Plan for approval and/or feedback using this form.

Step 2 – Begin your work with your team based on your Action Plan. Use this log template to record your individual implementation activities (first tab on the document, 30 hours per credit hour attempted) and face-to-face meeting notes (second tab on the document, 5 hours per credit hour attempted). Note that there are two tabs on the document.

Step 3Submit your Implementation Activities and Face-to-Face Meeting Log from Step 2 using this form. Remember that both tabs of the log must be completed.

Step 4 – Once complete, follow these links to register and complete the proper courses for Fall Semester 2017: 1 Fall semester hour | 2 Fall semester hours. FALL 2017 SEMESTER IS NOW CLOSED, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO WORK ON STEPS 1-3. LINKS FOR SPRING SEMESTER 2018 WILL BE POSTED IN JANUARY.

You may begin to log hours for Winter Semester 2018. Links to register for that semester will be provided in January 2018.
