Online Professional Development Courses

As an early childhood educator, continued professional development will help support your commitment to high quality and developmentally appropriate practice.

That’s why we’re excited to introduce our brand-new online professional development courses. These robust courses provide educators like you with the opportunity to extend your learning in ways that best fit your schedule and allow you to earn CEU credit upon completion.

Our online professional development solution will meet the unique needs of individual teachers at all levels of implementation. Each course in our online professional development portfolio contains learning activities (tutorials, applications, and knowledge extension articles) separated into several different topics called interests. Designed in a flexible and modular format, you can choose to complete the interests in a course in the order that best suits you.

Tutorials in the form of slideshows, videos, and interactive experiences build your knowledge base and give practical information (e.g., directly applicable strategies) that you can use right away in your classroom. After completing the tutorials, you can practice using what you have learned by engaging in applications—case studies that provide an opportunity to reflect and apply that knowledge to your own practice. Finally, downloadable articles called knowledge extensions make it possible for you to dig deeper into topics of interest.

Benefits for Teachers:

  • Earn CEUs*
