PDLN has moved to a new platform!

PDLN is now on LessonPlanet.com, providing members with the same great professional development now with access to a comprehensive curriculum solution.

Educators, start building your EdTech skills and earn

digital badges/micro-credentials with our online PD courses

We are dedicated to improving learning by providing relevant content and competency-based professional development that promotes innovation in practice.

What are micro-credentials?  Why use them?

Micro-credentials / badges offer educators a way to demonstrate skills they develop as part of professional growth and ongoing learning. 

Digital badges are portable, so educators can share proof of their skills, that is up-to-date and complete, with current and potential employers, parents, students and others.

Earn University-Based Professional Development Units

We've partnered with WASC-accredited University of the Pacific to offer educators the opportunity to earn professional development units, along with PDLN badges.

next generation educators and leadership. Assessments are created with the goal of immediate classroom application. A rigorous review system, credentialed reviewers, and optional university credit ensure the value of PDLN open digital badges.
