The Digital Teacher Series
CFL PD courses are facilitated by highly qualified, trained, and experienced teaching professionals, most of whom have spent years in classrooms of their own. They know exactly what it's like to face the real-world educational challenges—enhancing student engagement, operating under tightened budgets, and undergoing stringent teacher evaluation processes. Our facilitators bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the online professional development environment, and strive to provide meaningful coursework and a stimulating, enjoyable experience for all participants.
