How It Works
How Canter Meets Your Professional Development Needs
As a teacher, you understand the value of lifelong learning. You also know that continuing education for teachers is critical in developing new strategies and skills to enhance your instruction, help advance your career, and inspire you and your students to reach greater levels of achievement. But how do you make time for high-quality professional development that is both practical and affordable?
At Canter, our self-paced, distance-learning model provides flexibility so that you can study when and where it's most convenient for you. Canter offers 3-credit graduate courses in two formats—online or print & DVD—so you can choose which works best for you. Our graduate courses for teachers are available in partnership with Walden Univeristy. We now also offer you another option to learn: Read4Credit™ courses, developed in partnership with educational publisher Jossey-Bass. These innovative, self-paced courses allow educators to read critically acclaimed books on some of today’s most relevant topics in education—and earn graduate credit in the process.
Canter’s years of experience with a multimedia curriculum means you can hear nationally recognized experts, including Dr. Robert Marzano, Jay McTighe and Dr. Carol Ann Tomlinson, who share the latest research-based theories and concepts in their own words. You’ll also have the opportunity to watch master teachers model best practices in real classroom situations.
We know that continuing education for teachers is important. Our practical curriculum, developed for classroom teachers, is designed so that you can immediately apply your new knowledge and skills as you teach. What’s more, because Canter courses include books and DVDs, you always have these resources on hand, so you can go back to them again and again.
Teacher continuing education plays an important role in career development, and through the flexibility of distance learning, we can help you balance your lifelong learning goals with your personal and professional commitments.
