Hillsborough CTA has two main training components – one for ongoing professional development and one for topic-specific trainings such as “Unpacking the Rubric”.
Ongoing Professional Development
The Center for Technology and Education (CTechEd), also known as the Hillsborough Consortium for Technology and Education empowers teachers with new skills through professional development courses developed and facilitated by their peers. HCTA created the Center for Technology and Education to help teachers to take control of their own professional development. Our innovative approach to teacher-driven and teacher-led professional development has earned recognition through grant funding from the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) Innovation Fund. The focus on teachers helping teachers exemplifies HCTA’s commitment to providing high quality services to members.
CTechEd currently offers nine online professional development courses. Since 2005 over 7200 teachers from districts around the state of Florida have completed one or more courses, earning over 185,000 hours of professional development credit. CTechEd also offers classes as part of the Intel Teach and Intel Elements courses and provides access to Microsoft IT Academy online courses for all employees of Hillsborough County Public Schools.
Hillsborough CTA also offers topic-specific training(s) throughout the year.
