A better course for better teaching™
Expertly crafted courses with real application in today’s classrooms
Over 30 years of experience has taught us what professional development should be
Our authors are expert teachers with extensive classroom experience who design each course to be meaningful, engaging, and classroom applicable. Courses are not just filled with innovative techniques and perspectives, but also show what these tools look like in practice. And with each course you’ll develop tangible products such as lesson plans, authentic assessments, or questioning techniques that can be immediately used in your own classroom.
Facilitation and feedback with every course
Experienced instructors guide you through your courses
With proven track records of supporting teachers across content areas and grade levels, our instructors guide learners through their courses by answering questions, offering detailed feedback on assignments, and more. Instructors have a deep understanding of national standards like the Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards, and feedback is always constructive, research-based, and thorough.
Over 200+ university-accredited courses for salary advancement and recertification
Take courses that match your interests and your budget
Our extensive curriculum includes over 200 graduate-level courses in 19 different subject areas covering both foundational topics and emerging trends in K–12 education.
Courses are reviewed and offered in partnership with our CAEP and regionally accredited university partners for graduate semester hours of credit and are also available for professional development hours or their equivalent across the country. Our courses are already directly pre-approved in many states and districts for your convenience.
And recognizing the significant investment you’ve already made to become a licensed educator, we’ve worked hard to offer our courses at competitive prices that include all credits, materials, and shipping.
You set the pace
Between lesson planning, teaching, grading, and supporting students, your commitments keep you busy
That’s why our coursework isn’t tied to a semester, and can be taken anytime, anywhere - with up to six months to complete. So you can expand your knowledge at a pace that works for you.
Online professional development personalized to you
A modern course experience highly customized to each individual learner, right down to your choice of engagement
As every subject and grade range has its own needs, we have designed our courses to include authentic assessments that mirror the type of work you do in the classroom. With case studies, active reading exercises, and time for developing student- facing activities, our courses provide consistent opportunities to express learning in an authentic manner. Teachers also set individual goals and measure progress based on their own personal and professional development needs.
In addition, our dedicated online community space allows you to interact with course instructors and your fellow educators so you can share resources, explore new ideas, and connect with colleagues from across the country.
Each online course also allows you to choose your preferred method of engagement: take the course fully online, maximizing the convenience and technology available - or if you prefer, download or print the course activity packets to read and complete offline.
