Over the past 20 years we have compiled experts and expertise in most areas of professional development. We offer comprehensive programs tailored to the specific needs and context of a particular school or district, and can be supported by job-embedded instructional coaching.
The most sustained, meaningful change happens when careful planning and follow up is employed. We take the time to discuss this approach with every district client.
About our Professional Development Services
Our consultants bring in-depth experience in a variety of areas including but not limited to administration and leadership, school culture, supervision and evaluation, family and community engagement, instructional support in core subject areas, differentiation, assessment and data, mentor training, and special education. Formats can be customized for a district or school and can be provided as half and full-day workshops, multi-day institutes, one to four credit graduate courses and embedded coaching.
Understand the goals
We work with our clients to understand the needs and interests of the target audience, to define learning objectives, and to establish desired outcomes.
Programs are tailored to the particular context and culture of the classroom, school or district.
We capture feedback from all participants, as well as from those who planned the professional development, in order to assess the degree to which objectives were met. We work with the district to plan follow up steps around embedding the learning into practice in order to deepen the impact of the training.
Share your ideas and concerns or, better yet, let us join your planning sessions so we can develop a professional development program to meet the needs of your school or district.
