Features & Overview of Facilitated Courses

TeacherLine courses are research- and standards-based online courses developed by leading educational producers in alignment with national standards. Our facilitated, interactive professional development learning experiences offer a supportive learning community and exemplary professional resources.

Courses offered directly by TeacherLine Southeast enroll educators from SC, NC, and GA only, while national PBS courses are open to educators anywhere. The course content is the same from both providers, however courses offered by TeacherLine Southeast feature a regional facilitator and allow for a more local emphasis.

Courses are offered throughout the year and are listed on our Course Offerings page. TeacherLine Southeast also offers courses on-demand to schools and districts to meet specific professional development needs.

"I learned a lot of relevant information that I can use in my classroom. The course was easy to access and fit into my daily schedule. I loved meeting other educators through our discussions board to learn about their thoughts and ideas."

Amy Jones, Laurens District 56, SC [INST120]
