Professional Development for Teachers

Professional development for teachers is an important part of improving our educational system.  Teachers should regularly go through training to keep up with latest information on education.  Some topics that are covered in professional development courses are the development of learners from early childhood through adolescence into adulthood, learning disabilities, curriculum, assessment, etc. 

Many courses focus on specific subjects such as reading or math. By spending a few hours a year on professional development, teachers can learn more about how to be a better teacher.   Learning & the Brain provides opportunities for teachers to earn professional development through its many conferences, one-day seminars, and summer institutes.
