Continuing Professional Development Pipeline Project

 

According to the 2017 National Board of Certified Teachers Study, Investing in what it Takes to Move. PD is critical in helping teachers perfect their skills and impact student achievement in their classrooms. CSTA’s new Continuing Professional Development Pipeline, powered by Degreed and funded by grant from Infosys Foundation USA, is launching in Fall 2017 and will bring 5 turn-key resources for K-12 CS teachers including self-selected pathways, community, badging, and amazing PD programs for novice, career stage, and teacher leaders!

CSTA is pleased to announce its partnership with Infosys Foundation USA to create a professional development pipeline. The pipeline provides value for teachers, districts, PD providers and students.

The pipeline will:

  • Personalize learning plans that guide a teacher in selecting the PD pathway that best meets their current and future needs and interests.
  • Create PD-based communities that provide greater support for teachers who pursue or complete various PD programs.
  • Certify PD completion in the form of digital badging and certificates so that teachers can provide authenticated evidence to their schools regarding PD they complete. ·     
  • Track PD over time via a digital portfolio that further assists a teacher in selecting future PD options and manage their overall career development.
