    The Center for Transforming Instruction will build the capacity of GCPS teachers to support our Powered By programs and expand blended online learning models across the district through specialized training focused on best online learning practices; teachers who complete this professional development will receive all necessary training to serve as a GOC online teacher at their local school to deliver GOC digital content in the blended classroom. Using a variety of blended online learning models, these teachers will serve as the teacher-of-record while also monitoring instruction. The professional development course required to begin this process is called the Gwinnett Online Campus Teaching Institute.

    Gwinnett Online Campus Teaching Institute

    This course is designed to provide an introduction to the basic functions of Desire to Learn (D2L) which is the learning management system used on our campus to deliver instruction. This learning experience will provide you with the initial background needed to begin teaching online courses. The GOC Teaching Institute is a five week course offered in the Fall, Winter, and Spring. Once completed, participants become eligible to participate in the Student Teaching Experience. 

    Please contact David Wise, our Center for Transforming Instruction facilitator with any questions.

Elementary Blended Model

  • Blended Classroom

  • A glance into an elementary classroom. GOC partners with Knight ES to provide Blended Learning Classrooms at the 4th grade level. Both face-to-face and online instruction using full digital content takes place each day.  

    Student achievement is high and this model shows tremendous promise to expand to other elementary schools throughout the district.

Middle School Blended Model

  • HUB

  • Dr. Johnson at McConnell Middle GOC has developed a blended middle school model in which local middle schools partner with GOC to deliver online courses to face-to-face students in two different models. The first model is a whole class approach in which students all take the same GOC course together during the school day. The second model is an a la carte model in which many students take a variety of classes at the same time. Both models utilize a GOC teacher as the teacher-of-record and a local school staff member monitoring the students.

    Gwinnett Online Campus (GOC) and McConnell MS are partnering to provide a blended learning experience for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students.  A teaching team is trained to deliver GOC content during the regular school day in a special classroom environment designed for Blended Learning.
