VAI Fighting Teacher Fatigue with 20% Off Flex PD
The ongoing pandemic has proven incredibly taxing for teachers. Reports have shown that many are feeling stressed, exhausted, and stretched thin from the mounting strain of teaching. Van Andel Institute for Education (VAI) wants to give educators and schools the tools they need to finish this year strong. To meet the challenges of our current environment, VAI is now offering 20% off* all Flex PD booked by June 30, 2021 for delivery now or in the 2021-2022 school year.
Through flexible workshops, learning sessions, and ongoing coaching schools can fight back against teacher fatigue while developing skills and strategies that inspire students' critical and creative thinking skills and teach them the content-knowledge they need to succeed.
In addition to the discount, Van Andel Institute is offering free PD Needs Analysis to identify strengths and gaps in learner engagement to help develop your PD plan. The tool and the report are free, whether you choose VAI as your PD provider or not.
"The PD today was awesome. I saw so many smiles - we needed that!" - Yvette Levy, Principal at Wilkinson Elementary
