Online Professional Development Resources for Teachers


As teachers adjust to the challenges of online teaching and virtual classrooms, it’s important that they feel supported by school leadership.  School leaders can show support by providing and encouraging professional development, coaching and support networks, so teachers can satisfy their own professional needs while better meeting the needs of their students.

SREB school improvement coaches have compiled this list of online sources of professional development – resources, support and networks that can help teachers grow and learn while they are away from their physical classroom.
