PBS TeacherLine offers professional development classes for teachers in Pre-K through 12th grade, and many online courses are provided in different areas such as instructional strategy, instructional technology, leadership, math, reading and language arts, science and social studies as of 2015. Teachers can take classes in these different areas and receive continuing education unit credits for them. However, to verify that a course is eligible for CEU credits in their school districts, teachers should check with school administrators or professional development offices before signing up to take an online class, notes PBS.org.
The online courses offered by PBS TeacherLine include 15-, 30- and 45-hour long facilitated classes or courses that are self-paced and may be between one and three hours in length. The course catalog has the list of classes available in the seven different areas cited previously. These are graduate-level courses.
In the area of instructional strategy, some online course titles as of the Fall 2015 quarter include Teaching for Multiple Intelligences and Connecting Family, Community and Schools. A few class titles in instructional technology are Graphic Organizers for 21st Century Learning and Blended Learning and Flipped Classroom 101.
Similarly, in the areas of math, social studies and science, online courses offered for the fall of 2015 are Seeing Math: Linear Functions, Developing Historical Thinking Skills and Many Planets One Earth.
