As CTE programs moved quickly to address the need to deliver instruction by alternative methods, ACTE & CACTE were excited to see the creativity brought forward by teachers. We also recognized that while the herculean effort to move all instruction online was the immediate goal that was met this Spring, we wanted to make sure that we could provide access to tools and resources that would help teachers do more to offer their programs as high-quality experiences. Hence our commitment to have negotiated with our partner to have provided free access to six of their courses about how to teach online, which only lasts through May 31!
Colorado CTE Learn offers over 150 self-paced online courses for CTE professionals, including a large selection of courses on online teaching best practices. Each CTE Learn course provides 4 hours of continuing education credits. Additionally, participants have the opportunity to earn college credits for their completed CTE Learn courses.
To support schools during these challenging times, Colorado CTE Learn is currently offering schools 50% off on CTE Learn enrollment/subscription key purchases! Simply use VIP Code CTE50 to make your purchase on https://co.ctelearn.org. This special COVID19 offer is available until July 31st. Purchased keys can be used anytime within one year of purchase.
The good news is that there are several sources of funding that you could use to offset the expense of subscribing to and taking full advantage of the professional development at Colorado CTE Learn. One of the newest sources that you may be able to utilize funding from is the Emergency Relief Funding (ESSR) from the CARES Act to provide online professional development opportunities through Colorado CTE Learn. Or maybe your CTE director still has Perkins funds to use, since the CACTE CareerTech Virtual Summit is less expensive than the in-person Summit – never hurts to ask! 😉
