Professional Development Schedule
Learn about best practices in literacy teaching, coaching, and school leadership with Lesley's Center for Reading Recovery & Literacy Collaborative.
Most of our offerings are for educators in grades K–8, while Leveled Literacy Intervention Training goes up to grade 12. You can take many of our courses for graduate credit or noncredit for professional development hours. If you can't come to campus, take advantage of our online graduate courses.
The health and wellbeing of our university community and members of our extended community are always first, so in keeping with federal and state health and safety guidelines related to Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19), Lesley University has postponed events through the end of March. We’re monitoring this situation and will make rescheduling decisions as soon as circumstances allow.
These offerings take place on the Lesley University campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts. We can also deliver several of these offerings to a group of educators at your school.
