Professional development for teachers is an essential part of improving our educational system. By going regularly through training, teachers can 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 pre-conference workshops, one-day seminars, inservice, and summer institutes focus on specific subjects such as reading or math while conferences provide opportunities for educators to learn many different topics. 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, inservice, and summer institutes.
