Whether you prefer to earn your CEUs at one o’clock in the morning, from a wireless coffee shop — in Trujillo, Peru, or simply from your planning period, LEARN NC’s professional development courses support you whenever and wherever you need new skills and knowledge. Unlike traditional models, our online professional development offers educators the opportunity to learn at their own pace, when they have the most energy, and through forums that kindle reflection and collaboration.
Enroll in a course that addresses your content area and fits your schedule. All LEARN NC courses follow a researched model for quality professional development and online learning. Our instructors’ advanced coursework and research expertise set them apart form other teacher-trainers.
LEARN NC has developed more than a dozen new courses that focus on two critical areas of need in North Carolina: improving teaching in core areas and closing the achievement gap for minority students. Topics include United States history, social justice, and global issues, as well as subjects where student achievement has been a particular challenge, like inquiry-based science and mathematics. For detailed descriptions of course offerings, visit our online courses page.
Courses are currently operated on a cost-recovery basis. LEARN NC works directly with schools to offer local professional development in an online setting that supports the professional learning community (PLC) model. Schools and school systems may also purchase blocks of seats in online courses for educators.
LEARN NC continues to provide North Carolina school systems the Train-the-Trainer program to develop local capacity for offering a select list of online professional development courses.
