PBS Boosts Peer Connection Resources


PBS TeacherLine has expanded its professional development support tools through Peer Connection, a portal tailored for instructional coaches--those who develop and deliver professional development for their peers. It now includes expanded resources in core subjects and instructional technology.

Peer Connection allows instructional coaches to create professional development programs for online, blended, or in person instruction. The expanded version of Peer Connection, which launched last week, includes additional standards-aligned content covering K-12 math ad reading, as well as instructional technology.

Aside from the new content, Peer Connection offers tutorials, multimedia resources, coaching modules (practical and theoretical information materials), embedded communications, and an online discussion community.

More information about Peer Connection can be found at the link below.
