How it Works:
Graduate Level Credit For Teachers and Educators
Earn up to 3 hours of graduate-level semester credits / units (per course) with David Greenberg and University of the Pacific, Benerd College. Together, for over thirty years, David Greenberg and University of the Pacific have worked passionately to help educators meet their professional development needs across the nation. And at only $62 per semester credit, our professional development opportunities are affordable, convenient and practical. Completely designed for busy teachers like you, you will get up to 6 months to submit coursework requirements, and extensions are always granted upon request. Graduate-level credit is available for all current (ongoing) or previous Oregon Coast Children’s Book Writer Workshop participants.
Step 1: Visit David Greenbergs' site and complete one of the following courses:
Step 2: Complete follow-up coursework requirements based on your learning experience
Upon successful completion of a David Greenberg course, you will invest time reflecting on your course materials to culminate in an innovative project of your choice (e.g., lesson(s), curriculum, learning activities, books, or a professional development plan, etc.) that applies the strategies learned. As a student, your practicum requirements will consist of completing a reflection paper to demonstrate the implementation of strategies learned into a classroom or program setting. An additional expectation is to complete a time log that documents the time spent for completing your coursework requirements. The specific requirements concerning your reflection paper and time log are based on how many credits you take.
Step 3: Earn Graduate-Level Semester Credits
Graduate-level semester credit is awarded upon successful completion of coursework requirements. Primarily designed for salary advancement and licensure renewal requirements, all David Greenberg professional development courses are letter graded and will appear on an Official Transcript from University of the Pacific, Benerd College. The true course ending date that will appear on your transcript will reflect the date in which your completed coursework was reviewed and graded.
UOP course titles will not match directly with David Greenberg courses. The choice is yours – you choose which course and how many graduate-level semester credits you would like to earn. Each course below may be attempted for 1- 3 graduate-level credits and enrollment is open year round at any time.
