Teacher watching webPD online professional development

On the fence about webPD?

Maybe you’ve had these common concerns…

I can’t afford a subscription to webPD.

A subscription to webPD is super affordable—just $99/year! That breaks down to just over $8/month, which is probably less than you’re paying for Netflix. Many teachers also request funding from their school to receive a subscription to webPD at no out-of-pocket cost.

I don’t have time to watch PD videos.

We get it—life seems to get busier by the year! That’s why webPD is designed to offer a mix of longer and shorter PD videos. Have a few minutes during lunch? Watch a 5-minute video to improve your instruction. And when you have more time available, be sure to take a deep dive with a longer webPD session.

With so many videos in webPD, how will I know what to watch?

While a large selection of options might be exciting for some, others might struggle with knowing where to start. That’s why we designed easy-to-follow Learning Paths with recommended videos to watch. The categories and search function also make finding the right video quick and easy!

Our school already follows a curriculum.

The reason so many teachers love webPD is that it provides simple and effective strategies that enhance what you’re already doing. By watching webPD videos, you will come away with practical strategies to increase the effectiveness of your instruction.

I’ve already attended Smekens training.
