PD Bytes™

Best Practice Strategies in Under an Hour

What's a PD Byte™? It's a small "byte" of practical professional learning that can be completed in a prep period, at home, or in a PLC meeting. These 45-60 minute self-paced online courses introduce a single best practice classroom strategy, offer a downloadable resource/template, and guide teachers through trying it in their own classroom. Ideal for squeezing PD into tight teaching schedules and ever-shrinking budgets, each PD Byte is equivalent to a 1-hour professional learning credit.
