New Course: Preparing to Teach During COVID-19

Teachers who have learned new skills and technologies can earn 1, 2, or 3 professional development credits through Idaho State University. We realize this is a difficult and new time in your teaching career. To receive your credits, you will email your documentation of hours (a simple log of time spent) to us. Hours can be counted for any learning since February 2020-present.  For each credit, you should document 15 hours of work. Once registered, you will receive an email with instructions on where to send the log. Once received, your grade will post within 1 week and you can order your transcript at no cost.


Our courses and registration are conveniently found online in our Course Catalog.


Transcripts are available when courses end and are free of cost.


Courses are priced at $55/per credit, now the lowest in the state.

ISU will facilitate credit for courses in your district, school, or conferences.
