"SCT worked very well for me in completing my continuing education credits in areas that interested me and were applicable to my job. I was more than impressed with the quality of the text books and the caliber of the assignments. The coursework was meaningful and special attention was given to the application of the material to the classroom. I never felt like an assignment was a waste of time. That is so important in our busy lives. SCT even worked with me to modify some assignments so that they would be more relevant to my position as a specialist. I recommend SCT without hesitation."

Professional Learning Communities (PLCs):
Introduction and Implementation

Online or Print Based Course Online Course Printed Course

A PLC (Professional Learning Community) is composed of collaborative teams whose members work interdependently to achieve common goals linked to the purpose of learning for all. In a PLC, collaboration represents a systematic process in which teachers work together interdependently in order to impact their classroom practice in ways that will lead to better results for their students, for their team, and for their school. This course introduces the components of the PLC process as well as some preliminary steps to implement them within one's school. The projected outcome of this course is to provide educators with the knowledge, understanding, and methodologies needed to improve education for ALL students through the PLC process. School personnel that are in the preliminary stages of bringing PLCs into their buildings, may benefit from taking this course with colleagues.
