We are always seeking to continually develop better professional development opportunities based on your feedback. As you may know, we rolled out a new learning management system for online PD based on your thoughts about what was working and what wasn’t. Your feedback has been so critical, and we thank you for voicing your needs and concerns. We listened and are excited to announce a new and updated NextThought platform for all your online learning.
If you haven’t created an account on our NextThought platform, you can visit opsrc.net/login to access videos and instructions on creating your account and enrolling in all our course offerings.
If you have created an account on our OPSRC NextThought platform, your username and password will be the same. When you log in, you will notice some course pathways, specifically for support and certified personnel, as well as optional courses. If you completed a course in NextThought prior to March 25, 2019, we have kept track of your course completions and certificates. If you need any documentation, please submit a help desk ticket.
We hope you will like all of the new functions--you'll now have access to a chat feature, discussion board and sharing options that allow you to connect with other educators across the state. Distance is no longer a barrier for you to collaborate and share best practices!
Can you believe the school year is almost over? Just a few weeks remain with your students, and then summer begins! We've all heard the myth that educators “take summers off” while lounging by the pool, but OSPRC knows summers are when the real work begins to prepare for next year.
That is what the OPSRC team and specifically the Teaching & Learning team are planning for your staff/school & district as we head into the Spring. OPSRC is excited to be planning five regional events throughout the 2016-2017 year dubbed REFRESH: An Interactive Professional Development Forum.
