Workshops and Courses
Our workshops and courses provide unparalleled, authoritative professional development, and are designed to strengthen the professional credentials of educators at all levels. You will find training in content areas and educational theory and practice, as well as supplemental video programs called teaching practices libraries that give a "fly-on-the-wall" view of real teachers in real classrooms.
From K-12 teacher professional development to instructional programming in subjects across the curriculum, Annenberg Learner professional development video programs, with their coordinated print materials and websites, help teachers increase their expertise and develop their craft. Our educational programs are available for purchase on DVD. We also offer companion texts or guides for most series.
