Why Choose PDLN?

Competency-Based

To earn a PDLN badge, educators show evidence of learning by applying their new knowledge and skills in educational contexts. We believe professional development is most powerful, and cost effective, when it results in innovation in practice and improved learning.

Effective and Personal

PDLN courses are personalized. We honor skills and knowledge educators already possess and build on that expertise to support professional learning in the most time-efficient way. That way, teachers can focus on acquiring new skills to improve learning. And immediately apply them in the classroom.

Accessible

Support your teachers with professional learning opportunities they can pursue at the times that work best for them. You’re offering them flexibility and freedom to learn at their own pace and in ways that work best for them.

Affordable

Working within a district or building budget need not preclude high quality, personalized professional development. You can empower your staff with new skills via PDLN’s relevant, rigorous, educator-designed PD. Full access packages offer organizations the flexibility to meet a wide range of PD needs with a single contract.

University Credit

Our first-of-its-kind partnership with University of the Pacific lets your teachers earn optional university-based professional development units (PDUs) with each PDLN badge course they complete. That means you’re giving them more than just new knowledge and skills. You’re giving them the chance to earn university recognition for their work.

Digital Badges

Learning is an active process, and digital badges show more than just participation. PDLN’s credentialed third-party reviewers validate evidence of learning so you are assured professional development improves practice. Badges link to relevant standards, course content, badge issuer, date issued, and optionally, to an educator’s original work.

Evidence of Learning

To the right you’ll find examples of work educators have submitted for their Assessments of Knowledge (AOKs) to demonstrate skills mastery and application of new knowledge.
