Pearson Launches Year-Long Webinar Series for Higher Ed PD

Pearson has launched "Learning Makes Us," a year-long professional development webinar series designed to introduce college and university educators to pedagogical approaches, learning designs, educational trends and research.

Speakers will include authors and faculty advocates spanning multiple disciplines presenting on topics such as business, computer science, engineering, employability, English, humanities, languages, life sciences, mathematics, physical sciences, social sciences and statistics.

"As they complete the professional development webinars series, educators will have the opportunity to earn Acclaim professional development badges," according to a news release. "The badges demonstrate the knowledge learned from attending the webinars and can be easily shared on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, email and other online destinations. Additionally, for select webinars, educators will be able to earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Participants who satisfactorily complete the CEU project will earn an Acclaim badge and a CEU certificate."

"At Pearson, our mission is to help people make more of their lives through learning," said John Wannemacher, vice president of higher education strategic marketing at Pearson, in a prepared statement. "The 'Learning Makes Us' webinar series supports educators on their journey of discovery and learning, providing them with insights that will shape the learning opportunities that they provide for their students."
