Customized, research-based professional development is essential to help you create and continually refine innovative and cohesive K-12 curriculum, instruction, and assessment systems that ensure students are college- and career-ready.
Participants learn how to:
- Use standards to build curriculum, implement innovative instruction, and create a balanced system of assessments that enhance student engagement and measure progress to inform daily teaching and learning.
- Enhance teacher participation and practices using WestEd’s VITAL Collaboration protocols.
- Develop strategic plans and policies to support all district- and school-level efforts around curriculum, instruction, and assessment.
Services range from multi-day training to multi-year partnerships that include face-to-face, virtual, and blended models of professional development. A combination of these professional learning formats can be tailored to your needs, schedule, and capacity. WestEd also offers comprehensive needs assessments to better customize our services.
Our expertise includes former teachers, school leaders, and district administrators who are unique in their deep understanding of what works in education, and ability to bridge the gap between research and practice. Our team also offers a scaffolded process that makes changes more coordinated and manageable.
