Earning Points for Webinars and Videos

***Guidelines are effective as of March 25, 2020***

You may earned points for watching and participating in both live or on-demand (previously recorded, posted as video) webinars and professional learning learning videos that are at least 30 mins or longer. The webinar/video content* must be related to your contracted teaching assignment and align with one or more of the six Domains of Professional Competency in Education outlined by the Virginia License Renewal Manual, December 2019. You must also complete the Virtual Learning Reflection (VLR) log form for each webinar/video you wish to receive points. You will earn points based on the combination of the length of the webinar/video (total length rounded to the nearest quarter hour) and a standard 0.5 hr/point (30 minutes) for the completion of the VLR Log form.

*Webinars and videos about the COVID-19 Pandemic will be allowed ONLY IF the content is delivered within the context of teaching and learning for students.

Webinar/Video Length & VLR Log Calculation Examples

  • Webinar or Video 1 to 29 mins long > Does Not Qualify for Points
  • Webinar – 35 mins > Rounded to 30 mins = 0.5 hr
    • 0.5 hr + 0.5 hr for VLR Log = 1 hrs -> 1 Points Earned
  • Video – 50 mins -> Rounded to 45mins = 0.75 hr
    • 0.75 hr + 0.5 hr for VLR Log = 1.25 hrs -> 1.25 Points Earned
  • Webinar – 1hr 10 mins -> Rounded to 1 hr 15 mins -> 1.25 hrs
    • 1.25 hrs + 0.5 hr for VLR Log = 1.75 hrs -> 1.75 Points Earned
