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.

Sample Log for Preparing to Teach During COVID-19

Professional development credits are equivalent to 15 clock hours or 15 PDPs or 15 PDUs or 1.5 CEUs/15 OPI renewal units. Credits are graduate level academic/semester credits and will be transcribed on an official Idaho State University transcript once graded. Our credits are approved for certification renewal and salary increase, but check with your state to make sure they will accept credits from ISU (public university). Pre-approval course numbers are EDUC 5598P-40605 (1 credit course), EDUC 5598P-40606 (2 credit course), and EDUC 5598P-40605 (3 credit course).
