Course number : DEV1 E824   
« back to classes page
The San Luis Obispo County BTSA Consortium supports new teachers by providing a two-year induction program.  It is a support and formative assessment process designed to assist beginning teachers' professional development. The support and assessment system is both structured and flexible, and consists of a series of events job-embedded activities that focus teachers through a "plan, teach, reflect, apply" process, that blends teaching knowledge with performance. The first half of the teaching year teachers learn how to assess and understand the learning context of their students. The second half of the year teachers create an inquiry question and spend time implementing and reflecting on the process and the results this has on student learning. Intended to be used by first and second year teachers with the assistance of an experienced mentor/teacher, it is grounded in a developmental view of teaching and integrates the California Standards for the Teaching Profession (CSTP) and the California Student Content Standards.

Teachers new to the profession are required by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing to clear their credential through a CTC approved induction program. New teachers participate in 40 hours of mentoring support and 20 hours of individualized professional development each year. Mentors assigned to support new teachers participate in 40 hours of mentoring, as well as 20 hours of combined Mentor training and other professional development.

CEUs : 6



Please read:  One CEU = ten contact hours of participation in organized continuing education/training experience under responsible, qualified direction and instruction (definition of the International Association for Continuing Education and Training-IACET) Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are based on the number of sixty-minute contact hours for a course or program. (Example: If a course or program meets ten contact hours, you will receive one CEU.) To receive CEUs, you must be present for the entire course or program. Earned CEUs may be useful in maintaining certification or licensure. They may also document your continuing professional education for an employer, association or credentialing agency. Cal Poly Extended Education maintains a record of the CEUs you have earned through programs and courses approved for CEUs. CEUs are for non-credit courses or programs. They cannot be converted to quarter or semester hour credit and they cannot be applied to degree programs. Cal Poly may require a parking permit. See the link for more information:
