Professional Development

As an educator, you’re a lifelong learner. Follett is proud to offer a range of Professional Development services. Designed for educators of all types, our Professional Development courses show how to make the most of Follett technology and products. Get hands-on experience and hear real-life examples that you can take back with you to the library, classroom, and beyond. Follett Professional Development is more than just pedagogy or technology. It’s a merging of the two concepts.

Why Follett Professional Development Is Unique

Our trainers are former Grades K-12 educators with over 100 years of combined experience, the majority of whom were Follett product users in their K-12 careers. They are experts not only on how Follett products work, but also on how to use that functionality to save teachers, librarians, administrators, and other school personnel time as they interact with the software products.

When you select a Follett product, you are supported for the duration of your use of the product. Training courses available begin with implementation topics and can extend to a specific, highly customized agenda.

Your account manager, district CRM, and training manager collaborate with your district’s subject matter experts to identify professional development needs and necessary topics to address. This helps ensure the highest quality service and that the product knowledge shared meets your needs.

We can provide training to meet any situation, including prerecorded training, webinars, on-site training, and train-the-trainer models when needed. Follett goes beyond the standard courses and can provide recommendations on topics to deliver based on usage expectations and current end user experience with Follett products.

We offer free monthly webinars, a community of help and support documentation, and the latest updates. We also provide guided learning and opportunities to earn badges.

Our Professional Development series is based on best practices designed by industry thought leaders. First, we focus on the instructional strategy. Then, we show you how to use our products to meet your needs. The end result is more than technology alone. It’s a true end-to-end solution. Attend our sessions to learn firsthand about available tools and resources, as well as how best to use them.

Follett Professional Development solutions can support the implementation of national and statewide programs – such as the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) – in your classroom.
