The BTU is proud to announce a new partnership with Learners Edge making professional development options more accessible and attainable for the thousands of education professionals within the Baltimore City Public School District. For more than 15 years, Learners Edge has provided continuing education opportunities for educators from across the country. To facilitate access to continuing education courses, the Baltimore Teachers Union has worked with the Baltimore City Public School District to preapprove a slate of Learners Edge courses streamlining the registration process and effortlessly enabling access to valuable educational opportunities for teachers.
Learners Edge offers over 100 continuing education options. Courses are designed for PreK-12 educators addressing many of today’s educational needs including curriculum focused upon ADHD, Literacy, Technology, Social-Emotional Learning, and Educator Wellness. Learners Edge courses are self-paced and able to be completed without the educator having to step foot on the college campus, providing the flexibility that busy teachers need as they dedicate their time and energy to their students.
Representing nearly 6,000 education professionals, the mission of the Baltimore Teachers Union (BTU) Professional Development Center is to provide opportunities for teachers and paraprofessionals to enhance their professional and educational growth and increase their abilities to more effectively meet the needs of the diverse population of the students they teach. This new and unique relationship between BTU and Learners Edge will place high-quality educational opportunities at the fingertips of Baltimore Teacher Union members.
“Learners Edge courses are designed for applicability,” said Eric Cohen, CEO of Learners Edge, “We have a team of former teachers and administrators constantly developing rigorous, applicable courses that are geared towards helping teachers stay in tune with the needs of today’s children.” Cohen continues, “Our new partnership with the great teachers of Baltimore City and the Baltimore Teachers Union will help deliver that applicable learning to even more education professionals and in turn support the learning of Baltimore’s youth.”
