At SERC, our work helps cultivate excellent schools. This requires excellent adult learning opportunities that go beyond the one-time, one-way form of professional development.

SERC models different research-based techniques for serving adult learners just as schools must differentiate for children. Some of our opportunities are technology-based, such as online modules and courses in which participants can learn on their own time and at their own pace. Whatever the format, our content reflects the expertise of our education consultants with extensive experience working with children and adults in teaching and leadership roles throughout their careers.

We know that comprehensive, sustained support, in which education professionals from inside and outside the school work as a team, can be more effective than simply absorbing content from others. SERC consultants think of the educators they work with as colleagues in pursuit of a common goal.

Our Services page outlines some of these collaborative methods of technical assistance and support.
