12-Hour Facilitated Online Courses

Our interactive online courses are developed by a team of experts at SupportEd and provide guidance in using research-based strategies for supporting the academic achievement and language development of ELs. Each course is asynchronous with intermediary deadlines and forum discussions that allow teachers and administrators to learn at their own pace while improving classroom practice and support of ELs. Each course participant becomes part of an online professional learning community (PLC) that provides the opportunity for dialogue and collaboration with other participants and the SupportEd team.

We’re offering the following five online courses: 

  • Creating a Culturally Responsive School Climate
  • Strategies for Building ELs’ Academic Language
  • Strategies for Making Content Accessible to ELs
  • Effectively Advocating for ELs
  • Effectively Reaching Students with Limited or Interrupted Formal Education (SLIFE)

All five courses provide a certificate for 12 hours of professional development upon completion. Graduate credit can also be obtained through Trinity Washington University in Washington, DC for an additional fee and the successful completion of one 12-hour SupportEd online course. 

Registration is now closed. Please check back for details about our upcoming winter session (January 25 – March 8, 2021).

“Our teachers loved the format, the content, and the discussion. Most importantly, a year
later, they are still incorporating what they learned in their daily instructional practices with ELs.”
