Natrona County Online Personal Development Courses

Natrona County has been running the statewide courses for over a year now and the feedback from participants has been amazing. The content of these courses have been developed by the experts at ASCD and Intel Teach Elements. Both organizations have provided integration of their content into the Natrona County School District (NCSD) professional development site (http://pdonline.natronaschools.org) to allow group collaboration and course facilitation.

What makes our courses unique?
1) These courses are filled with Wyoming Educators collaborating on quality instruction.
2) These courses are facilitated by Wyoming Teachers (trained online facilitators).
3) These courses are offered for either Wyoming PTSB Credit or University of Wyoming Outreach credit.
4) These courses are affordable. We do charge a $50/credit workshop fee for each non-NCSD participant to offset the cost of course facilitation. (i.e. $100 workshop fee for a 2-Credit Course)

To enroll: Please go to http://pdonline.natronaschools.org and view the "Registering for Courses" section for more information and a link to the course enrollment system.

Courses are six (6) weeks in duration, are offered fully online, and are offered for two (2) credits each.
