About the Program
Elevate your teaching practice with our professional development courses and workshops for teachers, leaders and school-based staff. Collaborative and innovative, these competency-based courses provide educators the opportunity to demonstrate proficiency in areas that are directly tied to student learning. In both our in-person and online learning courses, subject area experts will model instructional and operational strategies that you can implement right away. Each of our courses and workshops can be applied towards New York State PD requirements for CTLE hours and some can also serve as P Credits for NYC salary differentials.*
