CUSTOM PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
CUSTOM PD FOR PERSONALIZED LEARNING
Our professional development is authentically engaging and allows for teachers to develop their practice in a collaborative setting that combines web-based professional development options with workshop-style face-to-face sessions. We leverage online/web-based options to give participants upfront information, ongoing access to training, and the opportunity to collaborate across the district. Face-to-face sessions then become more meaningful and impactful as participants dive deeper into topics and work to build out lessons, curriculum, courses, personalized learning plans, and other assets to be used in the PL classroom.
Zia Learning has a full suite of professional development on multiple Personalized Learning topics. The following is a list of some of our most popular topics, but actual PD would be determined based on district, school, and teacher needs, and decided upon in concert with all stakeholders.
