In an effort to assist educators, Piedmont Community College (PCC) is offering online continuing education units (CEU) in the area of digital content.

The latest The Digital Content and Instruction course will be held October 27 – December 10. The first two classes, October 27 & 29, will be held 5:05 – 8:05 p.m. via Zoom. The remaining classes will be online, allowing participants to learn at their own pace.

Through this program, educators will learn how to use appropriate digital tools and resources for instruction in a K-12 learning environment. Teachers will explore technology-enriched experiences, learning management systems, project- and problem-based learning, and digital learning environments.
