AUSD Teacher Training and Resources

Professional Development for the Transition to Online Instruction

From the classroom to the virtual room--the purpose of this site it to provide training in skills needed to make the transition to online learning.  Teacher TECH tutorials are now located in AUSD's Clever Portal under TECH Training in Teacher Resources, accessible only to those in AUSD. We will maintain some training on this site as a courtesy to other Districts. Note: In Google Teacher Centers be sure to check out the “Teachers Lounge” because that is where you can quickly get up-to-speed on how to use Google Suite tools.
