Professional Development

Master your professional learning.

The best educators are those who constantly strive to improve themselves and their practices. To ensure teacher and student success, McGraw-Hill offers online courses and in-person training for our programs, giving our teachers a deep knowledge of effective implementation strategies and instructional practices.

We build our solutions on five principles of effective teacher professional learning:

  1. Content-specific learning
  2. Active engagement
  3. Teaching models
  4. Collaborative learning
  5. Practical application
