Professional Learning

Continuous Development for 21st Century Teachers

Today’s complex and rapidly changing education environment requires that teachers embrace continuous learning and prepare to meet challenges head on. CTI offers high quality professional learning opportunities that improve teaching skills, with a focus on cultivating the educational environments students need to meet their college or career goals and enter a global workforce as successful contributors to society.

All of our programs are offered at nominal or no charge for induction members, and meet several LCAP priorities for agencies and districts. The programs provide an overt connection to student success/outcomes as well as to the new California Standards, utilizing the 4 C’s (Creativity, Collaboration, Communication, Critical Thinking). The programs are research-based to include technology integration and goals.

Our Professional Development for the 21st Century Educator are customizable seminars geared for public school and private school agencies focusing on engaging and managing students and learning for the new California Standards classroom.
