Professional Development Should Not Only Benefit Teachers but Also Make an Immediate, Positive and Significant Impact for Students

  • Are students passive and not taking ownership of their learning?
  • Do you struggle to find professional development that provides great value, is embraced by teachers and delivers immediate impact for students?
  • Do teachers think Professional Development is a waste of time?
  • Is it difficult to find teacher professional development that will meet the needs of all grades and subjects?

The students are engaged in productive struggle, while working in collaborative teams, and also show ownership of learning.

Because we all get to work together and if someone knows it in our group, but we don't, then they could help us and we could learn better.

They are happy to come to school and be here. The kids are more relaxed because they have the opportunity to share, collaborate, and talk.

Why Trust Learning Sciences for Your Professional Development?

At Learning Sciences International (LSI), we know you want to be a respected and innovative school leader who can plan quality learning for teachers that increases collaboration and makes a difference in the classroom. To do that, you need a professional development (PD) solution that delivers high value, can help fix big problems, is loved and embraced by teachers, and delivers immediate impact for students. The problem is often you have limited time to investigate the many solutions available and you’re not sure which ones will deliver what you need.

We believe you should be able to implement PD that not only benefits teachers but provides significant and immediate student impact. As former school leaders, we have experienced these same challenges.
We know all too well what it is like when PD fails and have experienced it ourselves. That's why LSI created an academic teaming PD solution with ready-to-use classroom materials teachers and students love that delivers next day impact with students. Our solution is research-based and field-tested. With a proven track record over 23 years, we hold ourselves accountable for your success.
