Online Workshops for Educators

Professional Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) is pleased to offer online professional development workshops for educators. These shorter duration workshops each explore a key concept or practice of particular relevance for today’s preK-12 and higher ed professionals, and are grounded in day-to-day teaching and leadership practice.

A core part of the HGSE experience is cohort learning, job-embedded application and reflection, and peer discussion. Our curriculum and learning experience are designed to create a community of practice for participants to learn with and from each other, and to apply what they learn, as they learn, in their own schools and classrooms.

Group Pricing
Special tuition rates for group enrollment are now available for our online workshops. Learn more about pricing opportunities on individual workshop pages.
