Professional Learning

From time to time ERAC creates courses to support major initiatives, legislative requirements or new directions in teaching and learning.

Building a Professional Learning Resource Collection

The purpose for building this collection is to highlight current research, inform teachers, and encourage exploration of promising practices. ERAC has evaluated some of the most current, research based professional learning resources. This collection only touches the surface of the many excellent resources available. We hope it inspires educators to look at their practice and pursue further professional development.

To continue to collaboratively build this collection please submit professional learning resources to ERAC. You can learn more about the ERAC evaluation process here.

Other key topics include Access Copyright and the Copyright Act's Educational Exceptions. Read more...

"Our experience with ERAC has been good. We take advantage of what we can as a small district. Main things are the Microsoft licensing, database bundle, document cameras and buying of technology like SmartBoards."
