Research-based Courses

Rigorous, interactive, & practice-based
instruction in flexible settings.

PLS offers online and on-site graduate courses and professional development programs that translate extensive research and educational theory into applicable teacher practices to support the learning needs of educators and the students they serve.

Our courses are founded on research-based practices, rigorous coursework, and relevant technologies and are delivered by experienced educators. With content that aligns to the research of Danielson and Marzano, as well InTASC and NBPTS standards, all PLS courses are designed to support, develop, and refine the instructional expertise of today’s educators.

Our practice-based, experiential approach
accommodates various learning needs.

With an emphasis on multimodal learning, PLS courses incorporate rich content, peer-to-peer collaboration, and practical teaching strategies to facilitate hands-on learning opportunities in which participants assume roles as active learners.


Our courses are accredited through our many higher education partners.
Current PLS institutional partners are accredited by the following regional accreditation agencies:
