 How to Register and Enroll

Register. To obtain "P" credits, you must register for each CE Credits Online course on the NYC DOE ASPDP website. If you do not have an account, you must create one. Our courses are in the ASPDP catalog using the provider drop-down menu and selecting CE Credits Online/Riesling Group.  You will pay the NYC DOE ASPDP fee of $125 when you register.

Enroll.  Once you have registered, you must enroll on the CE Credits Online website (www.cecreditsonline.org/ASPDP). You are here now, so you may proceed if you have already registered for your courses. Click "Add to the Cart" to enroll in the courses in which you registered for through the NYC DOE ASPDP.  You will pay the $189.99 course fee to CE Credits Online. If you enroll on the CE Credits Online website prior to registering on the NYC DOE ASPDP website, you will be enrolled, but if you do not register on the NYC DOE ASPDP website within two weeks of enrolling, you will be locked out of your CE Credits Online account. This ensures you do not miss registering with the NYC DOE ASPDP and thereby fail to qualify for "P" credits.

Once the term begins you may access your course.

  • Wow! I really enjoyed this course. The availablity for me to work at my own pace over the summer was just what I needed. I really enjoyed the format that was used in the lessons that were presented. The refresher course on the history of education and the impact that leaders have had on our educational system was very intersting to me. There is so much that you forget after you have graduated from college and moved out into the working environment. It was a trip going down memory lane to go back and think through the theories of great minds such as those of Piaget, Maslow, Erickson, Vygotsky, Gardner and Kohlberg. I still struggle with the No Child Left Behind law. I live and teach in Alaska. Our geographics is much different from that of other states. There are many communities (villages) and teachers within these communities that struggle to meet the requirements for this law. I do appreciate this being a topic that was touched upon at the end of this course. Thank you.

    What a participant from Alaska said about Today's Classroom: Foundations of and Current Trends in Education
  • Although the one student I work one-on-one with as a teacher and counselor is in the Emotionally Handicap Program (now titled "The Comprehensive Support Program"), the setting up part of classroom rules lessons work well with my student. I know, as mentioned in the lessons, that this program was not designed for the extreme cases I work with but know that a very good portion can be applied for such special needs students. I have spoke to some colleagues about this program and will recommend it to them. I did enjoy taking this course. I felt very at ease with it. I like how I could go back and re-read certain parts of the lessons with ease. This course was very user-friendly.                                

    What a participant from Arizona said about Stopping Disruptive Behavior
  • I really enjoyed the videos. They were very well done and easy to follow and understand. I could take what I learned and apply it immediately to my own instruction.                                  

    What a participant from Arizona said about Transforming Math Instruction with Interactive Whiteboard Systems
  • This course really had me evaluate where I am currently in my teaching. I liked how I was able to consider my students in response to the course information. This course helped me make changes in how I am setting up my classroom lessons to better help my students and I am already seeing improvements in my relationships with students and their relationship with the material. The moderator's further questions helped me focus better on the material and to specify my response to the questions.                                

    What a participant from Arizona said about Maximizing Engagement of All Learners
  • I have enjoyed learning some new strategies for teaching problem solving and look forward to incorporating them into my instruction the remainder of this year, as well as with a fresh group of students from the beginning of the year next year. One element that resounded strongly with me was Polyps four steps for problem solving. I found it enlightening to learn how to improve upon an instructional strategy that I thought I was already using. The clarity and simplicity of the process helps me to help my students to dig deeper into the problems, incorporate previous learning, and have a plan for moving forward with their solution. Another learning experience I appreciated dealt with extending word problems. I never thought it could be so easy to give students multiple opportunities to solve similar problems, not to mention the opportunities to differentiate. What a great way to get the most bang for your buck when teaching kids to recognize the structure of word problems. There are many other elements of this course that I have embraced to help kids to dig deeper, and understand more.I will continue to use the four steps for problem solving and extensions daily, and I will continue to work to help them become better "math writers".

    What a participant from California said about Improving English Language Learner Instruction through the Use of Technology
  • This is my first time using CE Credits online and I was very impressed. The material was very informative and helpful and easy to navigate through. I will definitely take another course!!                                

    What a participant from California said about Conducting the Parent Conference
  • The lessons and course information was extremely useful and informative. I enjoyed gaining the new information and am looking forward to implement the vast majority of it in my classroom. The ideology of the coursework was also enlightening and enhanced my understanding of the course material.                                

    What a participant from California said about Differentiating Instruction in Your Classroom
  • I found this class enlightening and encouraging. Due to working with students with severe needs I found that I already implement some of the tactics in my teaching such as scaffolding and utilizing different learning styles such as tactile and audio. I found it interesting that I tend to have the students produce the same end product when I know that the students differ in their learning styles. Reflecting on this I realized that I use what is comfortable to complete and what I feel is easiest to grade. I don't have it all figured out and there is much more that I can implement in my class. I was a little worried that differentiating instruction was going to mean that I had to individualize to each student but through working the chapters I realized that it is giving students opportunities to demonstrate their knowledge and receive knowledge through different modalities. I am aware through this class that I need to break my lesson into three pieces the content, process and product. Even though they are different I learned that all three parts blend and compliment each other.The tools I learned are the basics and foundations of good teaching. Implementing them in my classroom will not allow students to be successful but will enhance my teaching and breath new life into my lessons.

    What a participant from California said about Differentiating Instruction in Your Classroom
  • I am surprised at the amount of material I’ve learned. Now I know the names and techniques of things I actually do within my classroom. One key component I have learned is that differentiation doesn't mean a different learning plan for each student, but using various modus operandi will address the needs of all learners in my classroom. If only just using different content, process and products doesn't reach all students then I can tier and scaffold lessons so that high, middle, and low struggling learners can reach the criteria and benchmarks that they need to meet. Students who are advanced or need extra encounters can work on anchor activities. I already have many ideas that I want to use this school year in my class, especially an "anchor wall" or an “on-going work folder” where students can come in contact with material or ideas to keep going and further their knowledge, understanding and awareness of a subject or academic focus. I do many of the things suggested in this course already, but I can do them more deliberately and with more diligence with the end in mind.

  • The Moderator comments were VERY useful. I love taking these courses.
