Administrative Options & Benefits of Offering PBS TeacherLine Facilitated Courses to Educators

Partner with TeacherLine Southeast to enhance your existing professional development offerings and provide superior professional development to your educators!

Why PBS TeacherLine?

  • High quality
    Award-winning PBS TeacherLine courses:
    • are developed by leading educational producers and some of the foremost experts in education, including the National Board, McRel, the Concord Consortium, and NASA;
    • are content rich, research-based, and developed to align with national standards developed by leading professional organizations such as NCTM, NCTE, and ISTE (several courses are also Common Core aligned);
    • incorporate best practices and follow strategies that have met rigorous evaluation;
    • incorporate metacognition activities such as prior-reflection, self-monitoring and debriefing, drawing on constructivist theory and the "habits of mind" framework -- courses not only teach pedagogical theories, they utilize them;
    • include guidance in modifying teachers' instructional approach to meet the needs of diverse learners.

  • Immediate results
    Courses relate directly to curriculum and classroom activities, including designing projects or lesson plans incorporating course materials; teachers readily apply their learned knowledge.

  • Assured learning
    Our emphasis on evaluation assures that teachers who successfully complete a course have met the course goals. Course credits include certificate renewal credits and graduate credits.

  • Course facilitation & peer exchange
    • Our highly-qualified, experienced course facilitators are the key to the PBS TeacherLine experience. TeacherLine facilitators stimulate and guide participation, make online learning accessible for those new to the medium, and provide a crucial element of social interaction to online learning. Facilitators provide feedback and assessment against clearly stated objectives to maximize teacher learning and subsequent impact in the classroom.
    • TeacherLine's facilitated and discussion group format is based in social development theory in which learners' involvement in "communities of practice" allows learning to occur as a function of the activity and context.
    • Our robust discussion board component in every facilitated course is a teacher favorite! Educators benefit from sharing ideas and solutions with their course peers, whether with district peers in a private course or national peers in a public course.

  • Flexibility and savings
    • No substitutes needed - TeacherLine courses are delivered entirely online so teachers can complete coursework on their own time, not classroom time.
    • Serve a range of professional development needs, for 1 - 100+ educators at a time, through our 80+, graduate-level, preK-12 courses offered in core concepts of math, reading/language arts, social studies, instructional technologies, instructional strategies, and science. Educators can be individually enrolled in nationally-offered courses or private district-wide courses can be scheduled for 20+ educators at a time.
    • Discounted rates available for bulk seat purchases and private courses.

"We wanted to provide teachers and administrators with access to staff development opportunities that were standards-based and supported the academic curriculum. It needed to be flexible and collaborative, and reflect "best practices" strategies.

PBS TeacherLine has given our staff development program another dimension by offering teachers flexibility in the format and a wide range of course choices. The technology courses have helped our teachers not only learn basic skills and strategies, but also integrate technology into daily classroom activities."

- Jayne Boswell, Director of Instructional Technology, Florence District 1, SC
