I’m super excited to announce a project Lisa Van Gemert and I have been working on for months (and talking about forever!). We feel like the world of online professional development could be better. So we’ve created something better.
We’re calling it Gifted Guild.
Gifted Guild is based on the guild system of the middle ages. As a member, you’ll progress through seven levels of mastery by working through courses. But unlike typical professional development, you won’t just sit and listen.
A typical, two-hour module might break down like this:
- Video: 10 min.
- Reading: 20 min.
- Planning: 20 min.
- Classroom practice: 40 min.
- Reflection: 30 min.
Gifted Guild emphasizes planning, practice, and reflection.
Successfully completing each module gets you a certificate for two hours of continuing ed credit. We offer discounts for 6 hour purchases and larger. And we work with districts, accepting POs for larger orders.
So check out Gifted Guild! We think it’s a powerful model for professional development.
