EdLion - Assisting With the Transition from Our Classroom to Yours
Training sessions are FREE and available to anyone who is interested in the topic.
The College of Education strives to provide you with ongoing preparation and support throughout your teaching profession. EdLion offers elementary and secondary teachers free online information sessions covering a variety of topics from familiar professors.
Act 48: Act 48 is for teachers with a current teacher certification in Pennsylvania. The state of Pennsylvania has established that teachers either need to work on an advanced degree or they can receive Act 48 credit through approved workshops and professional development sessions.
For participants seeking Act 48 hours, a Certificate of Participation will be provided to registrants who participate in all of the live sessions and complete and submit the required evaluation forms. Registrants will provide the Certificate to their Act 48 Coordinator who will submit the hours to PDE.
We encourage you to contact the Act 48 Coordinator in your district prior to participation to verify that they will approve the Act 48 hours. The Penn State College of Education will not submit Act 48 hours to PDE on your behalf.
Due to recent changes implemented by PDE, the Archived EdLion sessions are not eligible for Act 48 hours.
