Professional development is pivotal in sharpening educators' skills and accelerating innovation in schools.

The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) is a world leader in best practices for the use and integration of technology in learning. In 2018, ISTE launched their professional development program ISTE U to provide access to high-quality learning directly to teachers.

ISTE U offers a library of best-in-class online courses to help educators continue to build critical skills for teaching and learning in a digital world. Covering a range of forward-reaching topics and innovative pedagogies for digital learning, these courses are built on solid research-based instructional design principles and best practices in learning science. They focus on the ISTE Standards for Educators, which are woven into lessons with an emphasis on their practical application. Throughout a course, participants work through interactive learning and project-based activities to integrate important topics and methodologies into their own classrooms.

Enrollment flexibility

Whether you are looking to enroll one educator in multiple courses or multiple educators in a single course, you’re in the driver’s seat. Courses are available for enrollment of individuals and cohorts. Schools have the flexibility to enroll just the number of educators they want in the courses they need and receive group discounts for the total number of enrollments across all courses.

Reach every learner

Access a catalog of best-in-class online courses on the ISTE U virtual hub. With a wide range of topics, the learning can be extended far beyond teachers to individuals across your entire organization, such as coaches, librarians, and leadership.
