It's tough for you to participate in professional development and still be in the classroom with your students. You have a lot to do and so little time to get it all done. Click, Learn, and Teach, a series of online professional development programs from the Federal Reserve Banks of Atlanta and St. Louis, is designed to make it easier! There are three options for you to consider, each with a different level of time commitment and a different level of educational attainment: Graduate Credit, FRB Certification, and CPDU Credit. To learn more about these options, click on the links below.
One hour of graduate credit can be acquired through the Emporia State University for completing 15 hours of course work, including readings; participation in an online, interactive program; and completion of the unit assessment. Because you will be receiving graduate credit, it will be necessary to apply to the Emporia State University and pay any fees associated with registration or with the course itself.
You can become an FRB certified teacher on an economic topic, such as inflation or unemployment, by participating in 10 hours of lessons, readings, and online programming. You can construct this program to suit your and your students' interests. There is no fee or additional registration process.
You can earn one hour of CPDU credit by working with your students to complete an online module on topics addressing concepts in economics and personal finance. There is no fee or additional registration process. Check to see if your state is included in this option.
