Educator Workshops

Educator Workshops have served educators in meeting their professional development needs for over 35 years.

We continuously work to maximize access to our programs by offering workshops year-round, on-campus, on-site at school districts across the Commonwealth, and online.

Our programs are of high quality and rigor. We target current and critical topics. The programs offered are driven by the needs identified by administrators and educators. Workshops offer three graduate credits, which meet many needs for educators including: permanent certification, salary improvement, professional growth, lifelong learning, and requirements for Act 48.
