It’s been quite a year! As you reflect on the skills and practices you’ve strengthened, the ones you’d like to improve, and your program priorities, what are your PD goals?
In the recent UMass Donahue Institute Adult Education System Evaluation Report 2020, 75% of respondents reported that “timing impeded their ability to attend PD” and Key Recommendation 5 suggested that we “explore adding remote training options with more flexible timing.”
In response, the Program Support PD Center is excited to offer our “On-Demand” PD Series of asynchronous PD videos, intended to provide you with flexible options for PD that you can access when it’s convenient for your schedule.
Important Note: You will not register via the SABES Calendar, but through links provided in the attachment, which is available if you scroll to the end of this post. Please see the attachment for details and all the information you'll need to customize your PD over the summer according to your own schedule!

- All adult educators interested in participating in asychrnous PD
This professional development activity/course is designed for:
You are free to select individual sessions, but in order to maximize your professional learning, we have organized 7 Strands by topic with sequential sets:
- Program Management
- Digital Literacy
- Distance Education: Planning and Protocols
- Distance Education: Tools and Products
- Mobile Learning
- Advising and Communication
- Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) / Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
You can “mix and match” however you please! There is no limit to how many of these sessions you can take, and there is no fixed deadline for completing them. Most videos are 60–90 minutes.
In addition to SABES PD sessions, we are providing links to relevant sessions from our partner, the EdTech Center @ World Education.
A final note: These sessions are intended to complement—but not replace—the rich, collaborative learning that occurs during the high-quality, sustained, interactive PD that you’ve come to know us for. We will return to these sessions in the fall and, in the meantime, hope these resources will be a valuable part of your comprehensive PD plan as you prepare for the new academic year.
