Overview

ProQuest® Professional Development provides educators with research-based technology integration strategies and tools for customizing instruction and assessment using our online learning resources. Schools receive the materials they need to build professional development and instructional models that can maximize teacher efficiency and effectiveness while improving student achievement.

ProQuest Professional Development makes successful implementation and ongoing use of online supplementary instructional material easy. It helps educators explore and better understand not only how, but also why, standards-aligned online tools and content can ease and enhance lesson planning and instruction—all using replicable techniques already in use in the classroom.

Educators receive rubrics, assessments, activities, and content designed to spur students’ information literacy skills, critical thinking, and reading and writing abilities, while increasing their own technology usage.
