Hi Jody. . . and thank you for the question. Once you are at the top of the actual Online Seminar, you will see that on the right is where you download Power Guide, Self-Assessment Guidelines, and Practicum Suggestions. Find where it says “Register here for Professional Development Credit” That is the form that needs to be filled out and mailed in to Dr. Lifson at the University of the Pacific. He will read your project and send you a grade and transcript indicating 1, 2, or 3, PDUs. You may actually take each Online Seminar for up to 3 PDUs with a 15 hour practicum for each credit.
We do not get to see your project/ paper ( unless you choose to send us a copy, too!) This is all handled through the form from our Online Seminar page and mailed by you directly to the University.
At the very end of your seminar resources, you may download an actual seminar-specific Certificate of Completion from Nellie Edge Online Seminars. This is where many teachers choose to list their projects ( maybe even with photos!) and total hours spent. You might attach a copy of your University Practicum Project. This certificate may be given to immediate supervisors, perhaps with the Self-Assessment Guidelines that you used to determine your goals and practicum projects. Most administrators value seeing PD that directly relates to increased student learning.
I hope this helps and that you will have the opportunity for meaningful dialog with your supervisor. Your students are so fortunate to be singing and signing for accelerated learning. Have a grand year! Remember, you can return to any portion of the seminar again and again.
