Professional Learning for the Common Core

Engage on ASCD EDge

Engage with and learn from fellow educators through virtual professional learning communities created for each VLN cohort on ASCD EDge.

These moderated communities allow you to study Common Core topics in greater depth with ASCD experts and share comments and resources with other network members.

(Access to the group is contingent upon moderator approval. If you are a current ASCD member, use your member log-in and password to access the group. If you don’t have an account, sign up on ASCD EDge).

Get More About the Common Core

Visit EduCore, ASCD’s Common Core online repository of evidence-based strategies, videos, and supporting documents that help educators transition to the new standards.

The ASCD Virtual Learning Network (VLN) provides ongoing virtual professional development training for educators to assist them with curriculum, assessment, and instruction in their content area that align with Common Core State Standards.


Learn with Webinars

Through a series of free webinars led by ASCD Faculty experts in mathematics, English language arts, science, and social studies, you can explore how to implement the standards in your classroom. 

Year One: Five archived webinars for each topic area (cohort) are archived at the bottom of the page.

Year Two: The 2014–2015 series is about to begin! Registration is now open for the October dates below, and future dates will be added soon. In the meantime, please engage with us on ASCD EDge (see sidebar). The VLNs remain committed to assisting educators with topics of interest and areas of need. Help us help you by posting your problems of practice in the ASCD EDge VLN community.  


Upcoming Webinar Dates 

Note: All air times will be 6:00 p.m. eastern time.
