This fall, we will continue to provide high-quality professional development to you on a wide range of topics — virtually!
What does this mean? It means that no matter where you live, you have many more choices than before. It means more options for finding something that fits your goals and schedule. It means that professional development is STILL important to teacher growth and student learning, and will not stop as we enter this strange and difficult year.
Heinemann PD offers webinar series, one-day workshops, multi-day institutes, speakers, seminars, and consulting authors — now all virtual. In this post, we will focus on two options for you this fall: three-part live webinar series and virtual workshops.
Our 3-part live webinar series have always been virtual and recorded so that you can access them on your schedule if you aren’t able to join live. Accessed through Zoom with recordings available to you for 90 days after the final session, each series by our author-presenters offer expertise on topics and practices important to our work with students now, including remote instruction moves.
Each session is 75 minutes long and the three sessions are spaced apart so you have time to synthesize your learning, try something with students, and come back to the next session ready to learn more!

- Elevating Equity and Justice Webinar, presented by Bob Kim, (join us in progress, Session 2 starts August 17th!)

Virtual One-Day Workshops
We all love the experience of a one-day workshop with colleagues, away from the routine of a regular day, that provides space to truly focus on content, practices, and our craft. While being in-person is not our current reality, our virtual one-day workshops still allow you to immerse yourself in learning for a full day. With many scheduled breaks throughout the day, you can be sure you still get a rich experience with the presenting author.
This fall, we have scheduled workshops in time zones instead of single cities. What this means is, that you can choose the start-end time frame that works for you. If you live on the west coast and are willing to wake up early to catch a workshop by your favorite author scheduled for the east coast, go for it!
All workshops are available to anyone, anywhere. The time zone schedule allows for a wide range of access, regardless of location, and the recording of the workshop is available to you and your fellow participants on our secure platform for 30 days after the event. This fall we welcome:
