Professional Learning Board
Created over 16 years ago, Professional Learning Board, a service of the Learning Factory, provides relevant and research-based online professional development PD for teachers and educators in all 50 states.
Picture this: You’re busy teaching, creating lesson plans, grading, and juggling a million other responsibilities when you glance down at your school supplies receipt and notice the date.
Ugh! My teaching license is up for renewal!!
A thousand questions start flashing through your mind:
“What are the requirements to renew my teaching license?”
“How can I fit continuing education into my already jam-packed schedule?”
“Even though I need to renew my certificate to continue working, where can I find self-study 100% online PD?”
You know it’s true because you live it: Teachers might just be the busiest people on the planet.
Now there’s help.
With 100% online classes, Renew a Teaching License helps teachers take self-study courses or self-paced semester graduate credit classes through regionally accredited universities.
When you just don’t have time, Renew a Teaching License is here to help.
Choose from a catalog of courses designed to meet your individual Professional Learning Plan requirements and renew your certificate at your convenience!
PD is a great opportunity for teachers to grow professionally and maintain their teaching license.
Unfortunately, in-school PD often takes educators out of the classroom and doesn’t align with each teacher’s Professional Learning Plan. No one wants their Physical Education teacher to miss class for a Mathematics workshop!
With ConnectedPD, schools gain access to an entire course catalog of 100% online, self-study PD. Teachers can choose continuing education classes aligned with their professional goals and take them at their convenience.
Provide Professional Support
Assessments should always be focused on paving the way for improvement. With ConnectedPD, you can choose from a range of PD topics for your teachers. For example, maybe your math teacher struggles with classroom management? Simply assign a Classroom Management PD course and track their success online, anytime.
Often, PD workshops mean teachers take time out of their busy schedules while a consultant is brought in to show a PowerPoint and explain a new idea. Hopefully there’s time at the end for questions, right? Wrong!
What do you say we flip the perspective on PD? Save time, provide convenience, and build consensus for implementing change…with Connected PD.
