Professional Development Courses & Workshops

The UCDS Institute is excited to continue our quarter-long, credit-bearing courses that explore the intersection of school culture and classroom content. With a cohort of professionals, participants will engage in highly interactive classes that are focused on practical applications in the classroom.

Research suggests that professional learning is most effective when it is personally relevant, recursive and can be applied and tested. These courses are designed for current educators to take a nine-week deep dive into a subject with the goal of positively affecting classroom culture, instruction, differentiation and assessment from day one. You will join a cohort of collegial practitioners to learn beside one another and, we hope, become networked resources as you continue your careers.
