Online Learning

With NCTE’s professional development resources you may be accessing the resources online but that’s where the similarities to traditional online learning stop!

Facilitated Online Courses
Peer to peer collaboration is a central component. Through On Demand Web seminars, classroom videos, in-depth readings, and guided activities anchored in your classroom, you’ll learn practical ways to put your learning into action in your classroom and school.

Self Paced Investigations offer brief (3-5 hours), self-paced online professional learning  about  the teaching shifts needed to help students prepare to meet college- and career-ready standards for learning. School and District license options available.

Web Seminars allow you to explore innovative approaches in  interactive, idea-packed 60 minute sessions with leading experts.  You can also revisit recordings of these presentations in your digital locker as your schedule permits. 


Who Benefits from NCTE Online Learning?

Teachers, teacher leaders, literacy coaches, administrators, and staff development coordinators can all benefit from participation in NCTE’s online learning.

Using the NCLE research findings on collaboration and  standards implementation as our inspiration, we are pleased to offer a new way of thinking about professional learning. With NCTE’s online learning resources you may be accessing the resources online but that’s where the similarities stop!  

  • We offer individual, school and district pricing options—because we want to encourage collaboration and conversation without making the process more complicated.
  • With shrinking budgets and time for collaboration, we draw resources from across our publishing library so your time spent together is anchored in conversations about teaching and student learning not finding resources.
  • Literacy is not just the English teacher’s job anymore. Our resources highlight literacy practices from across the school day, making cross disciplinary conversations more likely.
  • Professional activities are grounded in the promise of impacting practices not accountability and seat time. 
  • We’ve built choice into our activities, anticipating the many roles and needs in schools.
