EXPLORE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT COLLECTIONS ON GVRL, GALE’S eBOOK PLATFORM

For many, professional development (PD) can be a passive process. It’s a balancing act for administrators to provide sustainable resources to support teachers in a lasting way, meet individual and group goals, and still be cost-effective. This can make keeping up with curriculum standards a real challenge—but it doesn’t have to be.

Take on the task brilliantly with PD collections on GVRL, Gale’s eBook platform. Each collection brings together 10–50 cross-searchable titles featuring renowned authors from our many highly respected partner publishers, including ASCD, ISTE, Corwin Press, Dave Burgess Consulting, Inc., NSTA, Solution Tree, Stenhouse Publishers, and Times 10 Publications. This award-winning platform is designed to add new collections as they are released, which allows schools to stay current with important trends in education and offer titles that fit every growing need. Plus, schools now have the option to upgrade many of their PD collections by adding alignments to The Danielson Framework for Teaching (FFT).

More than eBooks, PD collections on GVRL empower teachers and administrators:
