If you find a MOOC that you want to participate in and want to see if NW BOCES will give CEUs or Graduate Credit for it please contact Julie Dalke. I will need a month before the start date to get the graduate credit set up. MOOCs that offer a Certificate of Completion will be more likely to be approved and the instructors need to have at least a Masters Degree. Please email me if you are taking a MOOC so I can help facilitate collaboration among teachers in our region-- ie. if another teacher in NW BOCES is also taking that MOOC I can connect folks so they can look for eachother online.
If you come across a good MOOC that looks promising; email a link to Julie Dalke so I can add it to the above list.
