Effective Professional Development Leads to Success for All


“To promote and nurture effective teaching, the profession should offer quality training, well-designed career paths, time to work together on the best ways to help students, quality evaluations that help teachers in their development, professional development based on identified needs, and fair accountability processes”Dennis Van Roekel, president of National Education Association.

The best educators are those who constantly strive to improve themselves and their practices. Professional development helps teachers broaden their skill set, learn new techniques for the classroom and hone their subject knowledge. Teachers that have access to professional development not only help themselves with their career goals, but also attributed to student success.

To ensure teacher and student success, McGraw-Hill Education offers online courses and in-person training for our programs, giving our teachers a deep knowledge of effective implementation strategies and instructional practices.

We build our solutions on five principles of effective teacher professional learning:

  3. Teaching models
  4. Collaborative learning
  5. Practical application
