MSDE/CPD Credit opportunity for members
World language educators customize their professional growth and enhance their repertoire of theoretical knowledge, networking, and practice by selecting 15 hours of sessions offered by MFLA-Maryland. New and experienced educators self-reflect on the professional learning experiences, engage in discussion with colleagues, and design instruction that aligns to State and National Standards.
15 hours will be evaluated through the completion of a running learning log.
These logs will be turned in through via a Google Form and Google Drive File Upload process in which the participant will submit each learning log reflection following the professional learning experience in which they participated.
