Investigations Professional Development

Our face-to-face professional development offers hands-on, engaging experiences focused on the work that teachers/administrators do with their students/teachers around mathematics teaching and learning. Facilitators have extensive experience with Investigations. Sessions involve doing math, looking deeply at math content, discussing and analyzing math teaching and learning, planning, looking at student work, and watching classroom video. Breakouts sessions are organized by content and grade bands, and/or time to plan and work with your team.

The specific focus, logistics, tuition, and graduate credits available vary by offering; use the links above to learn more.

Hosting a workshop or institute allows everyone in your school or district the opportunity of a shared learning experience, without travel costs. (One person attends free for each facilitator we send to your site.)
