Professional Development for Educators

Our Professional Development is led by expert educators who design sessions to support the unique goals of your school or district.

Customize a Professional Development Plan for Your School
Divided into four tracks, our PD is informative and interactive, ensuring tangible outcomes for all participants – from developing strategic plans with administrators, writing high quality curriculum with teachers, or supporting instructional coaches with the tools necessary to meet school-wide goals.

Our team will travel to your school or district for customized onsite PD, or you can choose a series of sessions to participate in with us online. Each track has several sessions that can be tailored to your school-wide objectives. Mix and match from the following tracks to start creating a professional development plan for your school.

School Leadership & Process

Quality curriculum and instruction start with school leadership. Design a seamless process with an articulated vision, in-depth planning, and necessary resources to support and engage educators and maintain momentum. Sample sessions include:

  • Design a Curriculum Process
  • Develop a Curriculum Review Process
  • Support your School Accreditation Process

Curriculum Development

Curriculum is the foundation for teaching and learning. Guide teachers as they create a living and authentic curriculum that elevates and aligns instruction to enhance student learning. Sample sessions include:

  • Develop a Standards-Based Curriculum
  • Support Teachers as Curriculum Writers
  • Coaching to Create & Review High-Quality Curriculum

Instructional Strategies

Transform curriculum into lesson plans and classroom instruction that engages students in their learning. Strategies like differentiated instruction, restorative justice, and building community will redefine the student experience. Sample sessions include:

  • Strategies to Engage Students with C3, NGSS or DI
  • Translate the Documented Curriculum into Instruction
  • Move from Instructor to Facilitator in the Classroom

Data & Assessment Literacy

There is no shortage of student assessment data, but the key is being able to interpret, review and analyze the data to make meaningful leadership- to classroom-level decisions. We will use your student data along with curriculum to:

  • Support a Data Inquiry Process
  • Create a Process for Standards-Based Grading
What People Are Saying

“I was amazed at how intimate that conference was. I just didn’t know that it would be so collaborative, so well thought out. I liked that it broke up curriculum coordinators from educators, from heads of school. The time and preparation that the presenters took to get information and then that time for socializing, to cross-pollinate ideas. I mean it was really just a well-run conference.”

Trish Rigg, Curriculum Coordinator | Portledge School

“Thank you both once again. Your product is amazing but you match that with the best education service support of any company I know and as an administrator who deals with many companies I cannot tell you how refreshing this is.”

Ryan Silverthorne, Vice Principal, British Columbia International School of Bangkok

“Thank you for all you and your team did to organize the Western Catholic Curriculum Summit! Those not in attendance missed a wonderful learning and collaboration opportunity. Hopefully this will grow into a west coast “must attend” annual event!”

Lorin Hebling, Blessed Sacrament Parish School

“Thank you for organizing and supporting an extremely successful first western Summit for Catholic educators. Your attention to every detail made the experience enjoyable and exceeded all expectations. I look forward to next year.”

Anne Egan, Principal at Blessed Sacrament Parish School

“Thanks so much for allowing me to be a part of this awesome summit! There was a wealth of pertinent, valuable information provided. I left armed and ready to help my team move ahead!!!”

Adrienne Maybank

“I had a great time, and it was one of the best PD events I have been at. The workshops were all great, and I have taken a lot away from it! Wonderful organisation, food, location and all presentations were spot on and relevant to today’s educators!”

Jennifer Mills | Yew Chung International School Beijing | Curriculum Summit Kuala Lumpur

“The event in Kuala Lumpur was great, and your team was fantastic. While this was an event sponsored by Rubicon – it was such a delight for it to be about curriculum and the importance of coherent mapping and not a sales pitch for the product! It was really worth while, and I look forward to the next one.”

Gary Bradshaw | Assistant Head of Primary & International Primary Curriculum Coordinator | Keystone Academy
