PDWeb Update

Sometimes, you just have to go through a process once to get a grasp of what it's all about. As teachers, we explain a concept and then give our students an opportunity to practice that concept. We are no different in that regard. Hopefully, we all now have a handle on how to sign up for workshops on PDWeb. That little skill set is the same whether you are signing up for a workshop at your school, a district-wide workshop, a summer workshop, or a workshop offered in a remote part of the state.

I have taken the sign-in sheets and awarded credit for all of the workshops that were offered district-wide. If you would like to see a complete listing of everything for which you have received credit, here is how to do it:

  1. Log into PDWeb.
  2. On the little blue bar, click on “My History.”

If you have been awarded credit for a workshop, you will see it. If you have signed-up for a workshop, but credit has not been awarded, you will also see that. You no longer have to wonder whether or not anything slipped through the cracks. What you see and what your principal sees will be one in the same.

Just to let you know who has what responsibility:

  1. If a workshop is offered across the school system, I take responsibility for putting it on the board. That allows me to see who has signed up, print a sign-in sheet, and award credit after the workshop.
  2. If a workshop is offered just for your school, the principal puts it on the board. That way, he/or she can see who has signed up, print a sign-in sheet, and award credit.

If you see some workshops that were offered just at your school, and you haven’t been awarded credit yet, give your principals a few days. Things get very busy in the office during these first couple of weeks. I will send our principals information on exactly how to award you credit if they are not already familiar with the process.

PDWeb is new for us, but I think you will soon see like the idea of not having all of the paper floating around and being able to see all of your professional development history at a glance.
