Professional Development

Our program is aligned with the most current research on effective professional development. We recruit a cohort of the best teachers in Wisconsin to participate in a mix of face-to-face and online activities over a period of months. As a teacher fellow, you’ll implement an innovative teaching practice in your classroom. We help teachers leverage new technologies and teaching approaches. Each cohort will produce courses, games or designs that benefit other teachers on a national scale.
