Course Description

Teachers and students are under tremendous stress to achieve and perform in the classroom, on state tests, and in the school community. The Covid-19 pandemic added even more demands on the learning community because so many students have fallen behind, placing even more strain on students’ and teachers' mental and emotional wellness. In this course, teachers will learn how to combat teacher and student burnout and improve socio-emotional wellness in the classroom environment. Overall, this course is designed to teach participants strategies they can use to prevent burnout and manage stress for themselves and their students. Teachers who take this course will be able to cultivate a learning environment where symptoms of burnout are prevented, acknowledged and/or treated with practical strategies. This will allow for improved instructional time, class climate, and student-teacher relationships.

Self-Paced, Self-Guided and Online:

This course has no start date and no due dates, so you can begin and complete the course whenever it is convenient for you. You do not need to be working with students to complete this course. Because it is entirely self-paced, self-guided and online, there are no scheduled meetings
, so you are free to work on the content whenever and wherever it is most convenient for you.

3 Graduate Level PD Credits:

Upon completion of this course, participants will receive 3 graduate-level PD credits from University of Massachusetts Global (formerly Brandman University), which can be used for professional advancement such as salary increment steps and licensing requirements.

Information about PD-Credits for Hawaii State DOE participants:

Hawaii State DOE educators can use these graduate level PD credits in place of PDE3 credits for salary step movement in the HIDOE's Teacher Reclassification system. Please note that this graduate level PD course is not located in the PDE3 system. Graduate level PD-credits instead of PDE3-credits means that coursework will only be reviewed by UMass course instructors and will not need to be submitted to PDE3 for further review. 3-PD credits will be issued to you directly from UMass Global. For more information about using university/college credits towards salary reclassification, please see the following Hawaii State DOE "Guidelines for Reclassification" memo: click here.

If you are a Hawaii State DOE educator, please download and print the 200-005 Form for university credits, and have it signed by your school's Principal. To apply your 3 graduate level PD-credits to salary step movement, you can simply submit your 200-005 form to the DOE's Reclassification Unit along with your UMass transcript once you complete the course. We have completed the course information for you on this form and it can be downloaded and printed at the following link: click here.
