Badges for PD Lets Teachers Show Off Their Achievements

Lifelong learning is a virtual reality these days (pun intended). Educational institutions struggle to keep administrators and teachers up-to-date and teachers find themselves challenged to stay abreast of new teaching methods and technology options to engage today’s digital natives in their classrooms. Here’s a year-long webinar series from a respected educational publisher that can help.

Pearson’s “Learning Makes Us” webinar series will offer expert insights on a wide range of topics to boost professional development (PD), with the award of badges, and CEUS for some programs, serving as added incentives and signs of achievement. As PD becomes less face-to-face and more technology-enabled, this is just one more example of ways industry leaders are seeking to serve growing demand for ongoing skill development.
