Professional Learning Opportunities

  • ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Conferences and Professional Learning Opportunities

On-demand, pre-recorded webinars and by-request opportunities are also available to meet your professional learning needs. Most by-request offerings are virtual, both synchronous and asynchronous.​ 


  • ​​Join GaDOE Community
  • GaDOE Community is a private professional networking space to engage with colleagues across the state. Keeping student success at the core of our work, the GaDOE Community site is a platform connecting DOE teams, school and district staff, RESAs and other partners around the state to share important information, discuss ongoing work, and share success stories in ongoing and meaningful collaboration. Community fosters a digital participatory culture where all members actively engage in conversation that promotes continuous learning and innovation in the service of advancing student learning. ​
