Below are recordings from webinars and other trainings I have done. I will continue to add new recordings over time as more are created.

Let me know if you have a request for a specific topic to be covered in a future recording. You can see my PD catalog with over 70 sessions here - https://bit.ly/curts-pd - or feel free to request a different topic not on the list.

For each recording you have the option to get a certificate of completion for watching the video, if you want.

👀 If you just want to watch the video, and not get a certificate:
  • Simple click the YouTube link next to "Video (no certificate)"
📜 If you want to get a certificate for watching a video:
  • Click the EdPuzzle link next to "Video (with certificate)".
  • This will take you to an EdPuzzle page where you can click "Join open class".
  • You can now watch the recorded video.
  • At the end of the video you will get a link to a Google Form which you will fill out to get your certificate.
  • The certificate will be automatically generated and emailed to you.
  • If you do not receive the certificate, be sure to check your spam folder, and then contact me if you still need help.
⚠️ Note: You are not able to skip forward in the video, but must watch it in its entirety to receive a certificate of completion. If irregularities are noted (not enough time between separate requests to have completely watched the video) the certificate will not be generated for the request.
