Online Learning for Flexible, Continuous Professional Development
Amidst the ever-growing teacher shortage, teachers need flexible professional development options and continuous development opportunities throughout the course of the school year to accelerate student learning.
With Lavinia Group’s interactive and immersive professional development courses, school leaders and teachers can enroll in online learning and progress through four learning modules at their own pace.
With our Learning Community Pathway, teachers will not only have access to the online learning modules throughout the course of the school year, but also will have opportunities for synchronous learning with peers during live, discussion and practice-based workshops.

Intellectual preparation gives teachers an opportunity to internalize and differentiate lesson plans to deliver high-quality instruction to all students.
Student work and data-driven work study:
Research shows a strong connection between the amount of time teachers spend monitoring student progress and student academic achievement. High-impact work study provides opportunities to evaluate student work, identify clear strengths and areas of growth for students, and collaborate with other educators leaving teachers equipped and ready to differentiate instruction based on students’ needs.
