The Edvocate is Developing an Online Learning Platform Dedicated to Building a Better Educator
Today’s teachers and school administrators are expected to do a lot and the pressure to stay ahead in the field is heavy. Continuing education is mandatory both by law and as a matter of necessity when it comes to staying competitive.
That’s why The Edvocate is proud to announce its latest offering, EdvocatePD, which will be available in 2017. This professional development site is being designed especially for educators, with an emphasis on P-20 education.
What Will EdvocatePD offer?
The main aim of EdvocatePD is to maximize learning opportunities for educators. The student-centered, supportive environment will ask for application of learning and not simply present exams. Through affordable tuition options, all educators can tap into the wealth of resources – whether they are just starting out or launching the second or third iteration of their teaching careers. EdvocatePD will be a place that teachers can seek out their own continuing education opportunities and also a place where larger organizations can give their educators access to a wealth of learning opportunities.
