Learners Edge Debuts Free Online PD Workshops

Learners Edge, a provider of professional development for teachers, has launched a series of free online workshops, dubbed Edge Express.

Each of the 18 workshops is designed to take approximately two hours to complete and cover topics such as classroom gaming, working with introverts, peer assessment and others that can be put to use immediately. Teachers will receive a certificate for each workshop completed.

"Education changes so quickly and these dynamic, quick-hitting Edge Express workshops allow us to rollout and change or update information almost immediately and provide our teachers with a quality learning experience in these topic areas," said Nancy Lindfors, director of curriculum & instruction at Learners Edge, in a prepared statement. "In addition, many teachers are looking for help with topics that are just too narrow for us to create a full-blown course. Edge Express workshops are a great way to fulfill that need and supplement our standard course offerings."
