TASA seeks volunteer teachers to design digital content resources
Date Posted: 5/07/2014 | Author: Jennifer Mitchell, CAE
The Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) is seeking accomplished teachers and content specialists to help identify and develop new digital content. In June, during three-day summer camps in Austin, teams of experienced teachers will help design TEKS-aligned content resources in middle school core-subject content areas and high school subject areas such as foreign languages, fine arts, career and technical education, and advanced academic core-content areas. The resource collections will later be offered free of charge to Texas school districts through TASA on iTunes U®. The middle school course development camp will take place on June 9–11 and the high school course development camp is scheduled for June 11–13. TASA will select teams of teachers and content specialists based on content-area expertise, enthusiasm for exploring new ways of teaching and learning and instructional experience, including proficiency in digital learning platforms. Continuing professional education (CPE) credit will be available for participants. Click here for additional details about the application process. Applications must be submitted to TASA with a letter of recommendation no later than May 19, and selections will be announced by May 27. For more information, call Brandon Core at (512) 477-6361 or visit TASA's website.
