“When I produce a PD video or a podcast, I get to sit at a table with the author. I get to ask questions and hear explanations and dig deep about what will help teachers most. I have learned so much in those conversations discussing ideas for how to bring the author’s PD concepts to teachers. And that’s what I want teachers to be able to experience for themselves.” – Kevin Carlson
Most teachers never get that same experience. But The Teacher Learning Sessions is built to be the next best thing.
Our PD approach formed from lessons learned while working with hundreds of classroom teachers, producing content with authors like Donald Graves, Nancie Atwell, Lucy Calkins, Jennifer Serravallo, Penny Kittle, Cris Tovani, Debbie Miller, Sam Bennett and many others.
We want to give you a seat at that table. But more than that, we want you to take the table with you. You can throw it in your back pocket, grab a seat and listen in when you want to, share what you learn with your colleagues, and bring it all into your classroom.
The Teacher Learning Sessions produces content from top authors that is on-demand, mobile, and designed to help teachers connect with each other globally. We call it short-form PD.
Short-form PD fits the needs of teachers like you.
