Taking a Train the Trainer Approach

  • Our goal is to build the capacity of your team to implement student-centered learning, so our programs are designed to facilitate a "train the trainer" approach

  • We certify your lead teachers, allowing them to "learn by doing."  We show them how to both utilize online materials and supplement those materials with project-based work, synchronous group activities, one-on-one coaching, and personalized feedback

  • We offer opportunities for student-teaching in a blended and personalized learning setting, allowing your lead teachers to learn an effective workflow from experienced practitioners

  • We license the online components of our educator professional development, allowing your lead teachers to modify these materials to meet the unique needs of your context and deliver our courses district wide

  • We ensure that your educators consider our courses a good use of time - we embed our professional development in the vision of the district, the learning model of the school, and the day-to-day work of teachers, while offering hours towards re-certification and college credit

And if our standard course offerings do not meet your needs, we will partner with you to create new courses, making it easy to capture and share the expertise of your team

 
As an educator who has spent most of my career in online and blended learning, I have been so impressed by the high standards of iLearn Collaborative’s professional development courses. The fact that the courses are designed by teachers, for teachers is evident from the start. I was also amazed at the excellence of the course content and the expertise of the facilitator - I learned so much from both! Novice teachers who are just beginning their journey into blended or online learning will walk away with concrete, easily-implementable steps to take to immediately improve their learners’ experiences; experienced practitioners will find new and up-to-date frameworks, tools, and best practices to help them continue to refine their craft.
