Home E Professional Development

 

We work to focus on challenges/tough problems that are important to teachers. We strive to bring you transformational, research-based practices and perspectives, preparing educators to work with diverse groups in an inclusive way and address how students learn at all stages of development.

CES face-to-face workshops for professionals are usually 1-2 days in length and feature engaging, expert instructors and classroom-ready strategies and tools that attendees can apply right away.

We offer a number of fully online workshops and courses – you can attend from anywhere, often with more flexible timing than our traditional face-to-face events.

We also offer blended courses that focus on deep, transformative experiences via multiple means of learning, hands-on work, and engagement with peers in a highly collaborative process.

CES Professional Learning Communities are typically free groups that are hosted and facilitated by CES specialists. Among the SY2022-23 PLCs are:
