- Faculty learn from the best
Developed by leading educational producers and some of the
foremost experts in education, every course is standards-
and research-based and content rich.
- Immediate results
Courses relate directly to curriculum and classroom activities,
including designing projects or lesson plans incorporating
course materials; teachers readily apply their learned knowledge.
- Assured learning
Our emphasis on evaluation assures that teachers who successfully
complete a course have met the course goals.
- Peer exchange
Our robust discussion board component in every course is a teacher favorite! Educators benefit from the sharing of ideas and solutions with their course peers, whether across a district's private course or a national course.
- No need to hire a substitute
Courses are delivered entirely online within a flexible weekly schedule so teachers
can complete coursework on their own time not classroom time.
As the premier provider of high quality online professional development, PBS TeacherLine has been recognized for its excellence by several organizations.
PBS TeacherLine Awards & Recognition:
"We wanted to provide teachers and administrators with access to staff development opportunities that were standards-based and supported the academic curriculum. It needed to be flexible and collaborative, and reflect "best practices" strategies.
PBS TeacherLine has given our staff development program another dimension by offering teachers flexibility in the format and a wide range of course choices. The technology courses have helped our teachers not only learn basic skills and strategies, but also integrate technology into daily classroom activities.
Our teachers are able to access the coursework with very few problems. They find the online instruction convenient and like the fact they can access the courses from school or home. We have seen teachers begin to integrate technology into daily activities and lessons, and to acquire new instructional techniques."
