Professional Development Workshops
Innovative workshops that engage and empower teachers
Customized to the unique needs of your team
At the Creative Learning Company, we understand that exceptional educators are the heartbeat of any successful school.
Now more than ever, teacher engagement and retention are front of mind for school districts across the country. High-energy, high-impact professional development programs are an excellent way to support those goals!
We specialize in the design and implementation of workshops, educational materials, and spaces for hands-on, interest-based, and invention-oriented learning.
We’re proud to deliver innovative workshops that inspire, energize, and empower teachers in the classroom - and see measurable results in student achievement.
When teachers apply creative learning strategies to their classrooms following a Creative Learning Company workshop, the results are nothing short of transformational.
Here's What Teachers are saying...
"I love using creative learning microworlds because they provide accessible learning opportunities for all of my students. I see students express themselves and their ideas in creative ways that meet their needs as learners. Offering multiple projects/activities within [a microworld] allows all students a diverse experience and a place to shine and take risks."
- 2nd Grade teacher
The Creative Learning Company offers a core set of workshops for teachers of grades PreK through 5th. We customize each workshop to align with your needs and goals.
Using hands-on immersion in our creative learning microworlds, participants immerse themselves in creative learning activities and learn strategies to bring these one-of-a-kind experiences back to their classrooms.
For Pre-K to grade 2 Teachers
Lead your students on an imaginary journey into an enchanted forest you create together – where mystical plants and magical creatures await discovery.
Like all trips into the unknown, your students will have to work collaboratively and exercise problem solving skills. And you’ll have a powerful tool in your kit to encourage your students’ creative thinking and support a range of learning styles.
Journey Into the Book
For Pre-K to grade 5 Teachers
Bring reading to life with this highly adaptable microworld that will have your students step into the pages of the childrens’ book of your choice.
They’ll envision and create the setting, and take on the perspectives of characters. Topics you could explore are infinite - the natural world, history, language arts - and are underscored by the social emotional learning that will help them thrive in the classroom and the greater world.
