What kinds of online professional development does Solution Tree offer?

Solution Tree’s professional development services focus on professional learning communities (PLCs) and response to intervention (RTI), as well as topics such as leadership and assessment that could be more generally applied.

Solution Tree’s main form of professional development involves sending education experts and authors into schools to evaluate and teach methodology specifically tailored to that school’s needs and culture. However, since this is not feasible for individuals looking to further their education and might not work for certain schools or districts, Solution Tree also offers online professional development in the form of online courses for teachers and Global PD.

Solution Tree’s online PD courses feature videos and materials from leading experts in education and live facilitation by trained professionals. The courses can be accessed from anywhere with an Internet connection and allow you to learn at your own pace. For more information, see our FAQs on teacher training and our full listing of online courses.

Global PD is a great solution for fostering continuous professional development at the school or district level. Global PD is an award-winning online service that encompasses teacher coaching, PLC tools, and the largest library of PLC videos and books in the world.

If you are looking into online PD at the schoolwide scale, you might also want to consider one of our hybrid events, where you can stream our large conferences/institutes to your school without worrying about travel and extra expenses.
