Educators willing to share their use of professional development in an effective or unique way are encouraged to submit a proposal to present.

  •     What was innovative about your handling of the issue?
  •     What were the roles and responsibilities of those involved?
  •     What was the impact of your solution, what were the results?

About PD 360 • Practical, Scalable, and Measurable
PD 360 is the multi-award winning, leading online, on-demand professional learning resource for schools and districts.

With 1,400 videos on 97 topics from 120 experts, PD 360 has the largest online community of educators, with over 700,000 subscribers. The innovative PD 360 videos are unique and class-leading because of the quality of production, and each is research-based with classroom examples of best practices. The videos are also relatively short in nature (about 6-12 minutes) allowing educators access to “snack able” content that is easy and accessible to view and implement.

Teachers, administrators, professional learning communities, coaches, mentors, instructional leaders, and paraprofessionals have available at their fingertips hundreds of indexed and searchable video segments that present real, best-practice classroom examples and feature respected education experts, such as Michael Fullan, Rick DuFour, Doug Reeves, Rick Stiggins, and many others. Educators can instantly find the help they need on nearly every topic, including differentiation, assessment, English language learners, leadership, and more. PD 360 can also be used to create a structured learning experience for an individual teacher, a PLC, or even an entire school. PD 360 bridges the gap between training and classroom implementation with job-embedded follow-up, tracking, and reflection tools. PD 360 gives educators access to an online community of teaching professionals that allows interaction and collaboration either within a district or across the United States and the world. PD 360 includes over 1,400 research-based video learning segments and is the most comprehensive web-based library of professional development resources available.
