Welcome to 2021
It’s a new year, and there’s a new look to WellesleyPD. Our in-district catalog of professional learning opportunities is linked to TeachPoint. To access your WPS PD records from SY14-15 on, login to TeachPoint and click on the graduation cap in the left sidebar for PD Tracking.
The “My Activities” tab lists the uploaded courses and PD activities from SmartEDU – be sure you have selected All Years at the top right. If there’s anything missing or not in sync with your personal records, then please… 1. Don’t Panic and 2. Reach Out to the Director of Professional Development, Chelsea Bailow. All records have been backed up numerous times in numerous ways. There could be a name change that wasn’t matched, a change in course status, or something else. We will work together to ensure your records are accurate.
After you’ve verified your historical records, take a look at the “Available Events” tab. Our incredible Instructional Technology Specialist team is offering eleven Technology á la Carte workshops this Winter/Spring! While the sign-up/registration process is hopefully pretty intuitive, please don’t hesitate to ask for help. As a reminder, these á la Carte workshops are eligible for 5 PDPs each; a trio of unique workshops between SY19-20 & SY20-21 will earn you one WPS inservice credit. (Multiples of three workshops result in multiples of one inservice credit.)
The courses from the Equity Literacy Institute are also open for registration. The first two courses are required by the end of the year, and completing all four courses will be eligible for one WPS inservice credit (as well as the corresponding PDPs). More courses and professional learning opportunities will be forthcoming. In the meantime, wishing you a new year filled with professional growth and renewal!
