AP® Summer Institutes for Teachers will provide you with the content and resources you need to lead a successful AP® course at your school. These intensive workshops will familiarize you with subject-specific AP® standards, course content and teaching methods, and will help you identify the skills and knowledge the exam will assess, so you can better prepare your students.
Hours: 30 hours / 3 CEUs
Where: UGA's Athens campus
When: Summer 2016
You will have the chance to develop or tweak your syllabi and lesson plans, and learn new strategies for teaching students at beginning and intermediate levels. This is a wonderful opportunity to exchange ideas and information with your peers, and to become a member of an engaged and diverse learning community.
A Certificate of Completion will be awarded to each participant who meets the completion requirements, and all workshops are approved for 3.0 CEUs which will be reflected on participant transcripts. Workshops are appropriate for both new and experienced teachers.
Coming December 2015
Week 1: Sunday, June 29 – Friday, June 24, 2016
Week 2: Sunday, July 10 – Friday, July 15, 2016
Upon successful completion of this course, participants will earn a Certificate of Completion and 3.0 Continuing Education Units (CEUs). CEUs are recorded on your transcript; to request a copy, email us at transcripts [at] georgiacenter [dot] uga [dot] edu.
The Georgia Department of Education is no longer approving programs for Professional Learning Units (PLUs). The PLU system is currently under review, and a bill is progressing through the state legislature that will extend the current suspension of PLU requirements for recertification until June 30, 2017. A new system to track professional development hours should be in place by July 1, 2017. Until that time, please speak to your school or district about accepting CEUs (see above) for professional development. Visit the University of Georgia CEU policy page for more details.
