Summer Professional Development from OPEN NH

Professional Development Opportunities

The OPEN NH Project has a variety of professional development opportunities available this summer.  They are all online and easily accessible.  The best deal this summer is to learn in the convenience of your own home or back yard.

Bullying Awareness and Prevention, a 3-hour self-paced tutorial, is available online from OPEN NH.

In an effort to assist schools in providing training for ALL school related employees, volunteers, substitute teachers and others, the Safe and Drug Free Schools and Communities Program and the NH e-Learning for Educators Project, both programs of the New Hampshire Department of Education, have developed a short online tutorial training on bullying awareness and prevention. This tutorial costs $10.00 and covers basic issues surrounding bullying, the Impact of cyberbullying, and the requirements of the New Hampshire Pupil Safety and Violence Prevention Act.  Participants will earn a Certificate of Completion for 3 hours of professional development that will satisfy the required basic training in bullying awareness and prevention.  For more information and online registration, visit  https://www.regonline.com/bullyingtutorial.  Districts may register cohorts of teachers in the tutorial at reduced cohort registration rates.  For more information, visit www.opennh.org or contact the OPEN NH Project Coordinator.

A complete 7-week course is also available through OPEN NH, and will be offered in future OPEN NH course sessions, or by special district cohort request. 

Substitute Teaching: Tools and Tips for Success, a 5-hour self-paced tutorial, is available online from OPEN NH.

In an effort to assist schools in preparing potential substitute teachers for teaching in NH schools, the NH e-Learning for Educators, a program of the New Hampshire Department of Education, is offering a short online tutorial through OPEN NH. This tutorial costs $25.00 and provides basic knowledge and skills necessary for being an effective substitute teacher.  Proper preparation before substituting in a school or district will greatly increase the confidence and comfort level of substitute teachers working with students in the classroom.  The tutorial provides a brief overlook of the situation in education today and prepares potential substitutes with an understanding of how teachers and students interact in our changing educational landscape. Basic skills and techniques for teaching lessons to students along with some strategies for managing behavioral issues are explored.  Finally, the tutorial covers a basic understanding of the kinds of policies and procedures that schools must operate under, including the NH pupil safety policy involving bullying.  For more information and online registration, visit https://www.regonline.com/substitutetutorial.  Districts may register cohorts of teachers in the tutorial at reduced cohort registration rates.  For more information, visit www.opennh.org or contact the OPEN NH Project Coordinator.

In the future, NH e-Learning for Educators plans to offer a complete 7-week course for substitute teaching which  will be offered in future OPEN NH course sessions, or by special district cohort request.
