Professional Learning Opportunities

NEA/CTA Microcertifications

CTA is excited to announce the launch of the CTA/NEA Micro-Certifications! Micro-certifications or “microcerts” are short, self-paced, practice-based, certificate-bearing  professional learning sequences offered free for CTA members. We will be conducting a pilot during this summer and offering a full array of micro-certifications in the Fall of 2021.

The Distance/Hybrid Learning Micro-Site

During the 2020-2021 school year, we asked our members what distance/hybrid learning topics they needed the most support with. We then found practitioners with experience in those topics and invited them to share their expertise through virtual professional learning sessions. As we move into the 2021-2022 school year with in-person, hybrid, and independent study modalities, this body of knowledge remains critical!
