Alaska Educators

As a teacher in Alaska you are required to complete 6 semester hours of credit every 5 years to renew your standard secondary teaching certificate. Up to 3 of those hours can be non-academic credit. 15 clock hours of non-academic credit are equal to 1 semester hour.

You may now be able to earn 1 clock hour of non-academic credit for every Flinn Scientific Best Practices for Teaching Chemistry eLearning Video Series package that you complete. Please contact your district or administrator first if they require pre-approval for professional development activities. You may also need to request a non-academic pre-approval form from your district.

Once you have finished viewing all episodes of a video package, simply print and complete the post activity assessment form below to keep with your records. You may then select a video package from the dropdown box below and print a Documentation of Professional Development form. Note: You will only be able to print a documentation form for any video that you have watched in its entirety.

Consult your state Department of Education website for any details or changes in certificate renewal policy. http://www.eed.state.ak.us/

To view and print the Documentation of Professional Development for a video package, you must be logged in.
