Just Launched: Complete your Teacher PD Live  

Last year we launched a brand-new way for teachers to do their professional development. With the help of some of our popular presenters like Tammy McMillan, founder of Share Shape and Shine, and Kelly Quilter of Teacher For a Day, we launched regular live PD sessions. The aim is to give educators everywhere access to great PD from expert presenters in short sharp sessions that they can tune in to from home, school or wherever they happen to be. The live format also allows for Q&A with the presenters to increase learning outcomes. ClassCover Learn members can watch replays of all of our live PD webinars for free. Stay tuned as we launch the 2024 season of our live webinar program later this year. 

Here are some of the webinars available to watch on demand:
