Continuing Professional Learning Amid the Sunshine

Summer break offers educators a unique opportunity to engage in flexible, uninterrupted professional development, free from the day-to-day pressures of the academic year. When you invest time in your teachers’ growth and learning, they can return to the classroom rejuvenated, equipped with fresh perspectives, and supplied with innovative strategies to enhance student learning. Ongoing professional learning during the summer months ensures that teachers remain at the forefront of educational advancements, ready to adapt to the needs of their students and the curriculum. We at EdQuiddity have various professional learning opportunities for educators to enjoy amid the summer sunshine. 

Summer Virtual Learning Communities Elevate Professional Growth 

Our Virtual Learning Communities (VLCs) are different from most online courses. They are created by educators, for educators. Unlike traditional online courses, our VLCs are guided by experienced facilitators from the leading professional development firm, IDE Corp. who provide continuous feedback and cultivate a collaborative learning environment. Educators can engage online for 25 hours of self-paced engagement while working and having fun challenging their pedagogical thinking at times convenient for them. At EdQuiddity, we believe that professional development should not only impart new knowledge, but should also model innovative practices and empower educators to design materials for immediate implementation in their classrooms.

Our commitment to creating a culture of professional learning extends beyond traditional brick-and-mortar settings. This summer, we’re thrilled to offer a diverse range of Virtual Learning Communities designed to meet the needs of educators. From honing executive function skills to mastering the intricacies of design thinking and leveraging AI in the classroom, our summer offerings cater to educators at every stage of their career journey. Below is a list of our summer offerings:
