PD Options to Choose From

Onsite Workshops

    SDE Onsite Workshops offer consistent delivery of high-quality content grounded in research and best practices and focused on practical classroom application. These best-in-class trainings feature the hottest topics, the most relevant classroom ideas, and the highest instructional impact.

Hosted Events

    Select pre-packaged SDE seminars and conferences are available to bring right to your school or district, providing a cost-effective option of straightforward and effective PD that can be minimally-modified to meet your specific needs.

Job-Embedded Coaching

    Tailored to address the specific needs of the educator, job-embedded coaching allows the teacher to apply the strategies taught in PD trainings right in the classroom, under the guidance, collaboration, and observation of a trusted expert. This takes PD from a “sit & get” to a visual and actual classroom representation, which research shows provides a maximum impact for a teacher’s implementation of PD.

Customized Conferences

    Whether you need to train just a few teachers, or your entire staff or district, SDE presents high-quality onsite trainings tailored to meet your needs. Featuring some of the “best of the best” education presenters, SDE will craft your conference to best fit your teachers’ instructional needs, and provide them with collaborative opportunities to foster a community of learners. We’ll help you bring real-world strategies to your school or district, transforming valuable theory into meaningful practice.


    Research shows that the best way to ensure proper implementation of new strategies and techniques is through practice and actionable feedback, and our onsite Modeling and Observation helps your teachers to introduce and reinforce new instructional strategies, provide in-the-moment, non-judgmental feedback, and build teacher confidence in applying newly-learned strategies and skills.
