Online Professional Development
20 hours of Professional Development that you can access any time of the day or night, for a fraction of the cost.
My Online Professional Development for teachers is available now with immediate access. No shipping costs, no wait time – you can start immediately!
What is it?
It is a series of twenty short 10-minute videos and accompanying reflection questions that are delivered in bite-sized weekly packages straight to your inbox.
As a teacher, I know how limited our time is – we never seem to have enough time to get everything done. Taking a day to attend a professional development course can be difficult and the costs of these courses can add up quickly, especially if you are a casual relief teacher and you are paying for everything yourself. This online PD program is designed for you to access any time that suits you.
How Does It Work?
It’s really simple:
- A weekly video link is delivered to your Inbox
- Watch the video
- Answer the optional reflection questions
- Keep a record of your professional development

How much does it cost?
Remember, it is 20 HOURS of Professional Development and it is the equivalent of 3-4 full days of PD.
(That is a one-time payment. There is nothing else to buy and you get access to the material for as long as you need).
Why This Decision Is A No-Brainer
My hope in sharing this material is that it will help teachers like you to be even more passionate and effective. I also want to provide teachers with affordable and practical professional development where the content can actually be used in their classrooms. I’ve priced it affordably so as many teachers as possible can take advantage of it today.
Many people pay well over $300 to attend a Professional Development Day and after 6 hours of someone talking at them and a brain full of information, the day is over. With my Online PD Program, it is in small bite-sized pieces, it is the equivalent of 3-4 days professional development and you can access it and re-access it at any time.
The Questions I Am Asked Most Frequently
Will I receive anything in the mail?
No. This product is 100% digital. The great thing about a digital product is that you don’t have to pay postage and you don’t have to wait for anything to arrive in the mail. You will get INSTANT ACCESS. You can begin Online Professional Development journey immediately.
What happens after I purchase Online PD?
After you submit your order, you will be redirected to an ‘Online Registration Form’ where you can create your unique username and password for the Online PD program. After you have set up your unique username and password, you will have instant access to the Week 1 video and reflection questions. From here on in, you will receive a weekly email for the next 20 weeks, each containing a link to the video and reflection questions for that week.
How long will I have access to this program?
Forever. After you receive the content each week, you will then be able to access the previous videos and reflection questions at any time.
Can I listen to a sample of the audio and read a sample of the workbook?
Sure. Click the links below to watch one of the videos and view the reflection questions.
How long do the videos go for?
Each video is approximately 10 minutes long.
Can this contribute to my Professional Development Hours?
Most definitely. And for Australian teachers, this Online PD course can directly contribute to your mandatory annual professional development hours. It is designed to be part of the mandatory 50% of Professional Development that is sourced outside the school.
Will you provide a formal certificate specifying the number of PD hours?
At the end of the course you will receive a pdf document outlining the estimated Professional Development hours (if you complete all the components – watching the videos and completing the reflection questions). This is simply a guide and you will have to specify the exact components that you complete in full.
If I complete the Online PD program in full, how many Professional Development Hours would that be?
There are twenty videos, and each video is approximately 10 minutes long. There are 2 worksheets with reflection questions to accompany each video. I have estimated that the reflection questions, if completed in full, will take approximately 45 minutes to complete. So multiply that over 20 weeks and you have about an hour of professional per week. That totals 20 hours.
Do I have to complete all the reflection questions?
No, you don’t. It is up to you how much you would like to engage with the Online PD program. You may choose to answer only some of the questions. It is completely up to you.
Do I submit my answered reflection questions?
No. These are for your records only. They are designed to compliment the videos and give you an opportunity to reflect on and apply your learning.
Can I get an invoice sent to my school for payment?
Yes. All you need to do is click here and complete the details and an invoice will be sent to your school. Once payment has been received, those teachers who have registered will receive their welcome email to start their Online PD journey.
Can my school purchase multiple memberships?
Yes. In fact, schools often make the Online PD program a shared experience for teachers in their school by registering a group of teachers. Simply click here, select payment method (Buy Now or Send Invoice). Complete the online form, detailing the names of the teachers you would like to register, and an invoice will be sent to your school. Once payment has been received, those teachers who have registered will receive their welcome email to start their Online PD journey.
Is the Online PD for any teacher? Beginning or experienced? High school or primary? Permanent or casual relief/substitute?
Absolutely. The Online PD program has been designed with content to support teachers in their teaching journey, regardless of whether you are new or experienced or high school or elementary. It will help you to be even more effective as a teacher.
