Goodhue County Education District Starts Online Professional Development for Teachers

Goodhue County Education District is using about $50,000 from the Blandin Foundation to provide teachers with online access to professional development. It will make ongoing learning and licensure easier and more convenient. And it makes good use of the broadband available at the schools.

Minneapolis St Paul Business Journal tells the story…

Whitewater Learning, a startup that offers online professional development courses to teachers, has landed a $100,000 contract with a group of Goodhue County school districts. …

Whitewater has developed a series of more than 60 online courses — the company calls them “modules” — that teachers can take on their own time and use to meet licensing requirements.

As an added bonus, Whitewater Learning is a Minnesota-based company so it’s a win for education and local economic development!
