    SEDC Fee: $210.00.  (All eligible teachers’ SEDC Fee of $210.00 may be paid for by the USBE STEM Endorsement Incentive Program)

    Utah Valley University: UVU charges $15.00 per credit for class credit. This is a three credit class, so tuition will be $45.00 (there is a one time admission fee of $35.00 if you have never taken a class from UVU). These charges may be REIMBURSED for all eligible teachers by SEDC with funding from the USBE STEM Endorsement Incentive program.

    Please see the below information and this document to register at UVU for credit.  We are encouraging teachers to complete the admission, registration, and payment of fees processes prior to the beginning of class.

    If you plan on taking this course and receiving the Utah Elementary Math Endorsement, you must receive college credit, you must register through UVU for the class by carefully following the attached instructions.  If you have previously completed the admission process, then all you need to do is go online, follow the registration instructions on page 2, and then pay the $45 tuition fee.  If this is the first UVU endorsement class that you have taken, then you will need to first complete the admission instructions and then register for the class.  Register NOW since you have only 3 weeks from the start of class to complete the registration process.

    John Allan is the UVU Endorsement Program Coordinator.  If you have concerns and/or questions related to UVU or the Endorsement Program, he is the person to contact.  His contact information is as follows: John W.

  • Test Vouchers for UEN’s Free Google Certified Educator MOOC Courses

    Test Vouchers for UEN’s Free Google Certified Educator MOOC Courses

    As you may know, UEN offers free self-paced courses for Google Certified Educator Level One and Level Two to help teachers become a Google Certified Educator. One barrier for educators is the fee that Google requires educators to take their certification exams. To help more Utah teachers become Google Certified Educators, UEN is offering exam vouchers to any teacher who completes the required coursework in the Google Certified Educator Level One or Google Certified Educator Level Two MOOC course. 
     
    These vouchers provide teachers with a free exam to achieve their certification. Teachers who complete their Level One certificate can then work on their Level Two certificate and receive a second voucher to complete that exam as well. 
     
    The coursework for UEN’s MOOC course follows Google for Education’s program and teachers submit screenshots of completed work. If teachers need additional help, GEGUtah and UEN hosted open GCE Level One and Two training sessions this Fall and filmed them. You can find the playlist at this link: 
     
     
    If your school or LEA would like a training program to help teachers become Google Certified Educators, please reach out to UEN via this form
     
    If you have any questions about this program, please feel free to contact Matthew Winters at UEN (mwinters@uen.org). Also, we would love to keep expanding Utah’s Google Educator Group with educators from around the state. Here is a great infographic PDF to learn more about Utah GEG and to share with others.

  • Interested In An Educational Technology Endorsement? Earn It Through SEDC

    Learn more about our online Educational Technology Endorsement Courses at SEDC

    SEDC is working in cooperation with the Utah Education Network (UEN), the Utah State Board of Education (USBE) and Southern Utah University (SUU) to provide professional learning opportunities to earn an Educational Technology Endorsement Program (ETEP) endorsement for teachers in our region. These courses will be held entirely online through the Canvas learning management system.

    The ETEP endorsement consists of 18 credit hours of courses: 3 3-credit core courses (9 credit hours) which are focused on many of the core concepts in educational technology integration. An additional 6 credits of courses focused on technology to support your curriculum, and 3 credits of courses where you use technology to enhance your professional practice are required as electives. These 5000-level credits will be awarded through SUU at a cost to participants of $23 per credit to record.

    Teachers following in-step with the SEDC ETEP plan will complete this endorsement in 2 years, but we plan on offering these courses on a continual rotating basis, so you are free to jump in anytime that you can. Credit earned in the program can also be used for salary lane changes. Coursework can be applied towards a Master’s degree program from either Southern Utah University or the University of Utah.

    Our next round of courses will begin September 6, 2018, but if you are interested you can join in at anytime. The courses offered during the 2018-2019 school year begin about every 2 months and run for 6 weeks. We will begin the 12-week core courses in early September 2019. Take a look at the upcoming courses we will offer!
