Here is the information on the RBT courses and the registration links:
Studying Skillful Teaching
Skillful Teacher Sign Up (registration closes on July 11th)
The Studying Skillful Teaching program is RBT’s cornerstone program for building teachers’ capacity – the knowledge and skills as well as the courage and conviction – to promote students’ motivation, learning, and increased achievement. It is based on the belief that teaching is a process of decision-making; and that skillful teachers never stop learning through experimentation, data analysis, study, and collegial sharing about what works best for their students. This reflective dialogue is consistently rated as an invaluable asset for building common and coherent language among their educators. See Course Flyer for more details.
