Professional Development for Teachers
As an organization with over 30 years of experience in education and over a decade in cultural exchange, Educational Partners International (EPI) understands the needs of international teachers. Setting us apart from other organizations is our comprehensive professional development program for our teachers.
Throughout the program, each EPI teacher works directly with our professional development team. Teachers also have access to all of our exclusive professional development resources for free, including the online professional development system, the books and videos in our Launch Your Classroom! series.
Launch Your Classroom! began as a handbook to help prepare EPI’s teachers for the American classroom. Since then it has evolved to include a series of four books, a weekly video series, and an online professional development system with advice relevant for all teachers at every grade level. We cover the critical topics for classroom success, including classroom management, lesson planning, student engagement, and more!
EPI goes the extra mile to ensure that teachers have a smooth transition.
EPI has changed my life positively with their extraordinary support.
Online Professional Development System (PDS)
The Launch Your Classroom! online professional development system offers a new way to access EPI’s comprehensive professional development content. Great for visual and hands-on learners, our professional development system provides proven advice in an engaging and interactive way. It gives the flexibility to customize professional development courses to focus on the most needed information. The courses are also an opportunity to connect and collaborate with teachers around the world.
Launch Your Classroom! Book Series
Our four-part book series Launch Your Classroom! is a professional development series written by education experts. The books cover everything from classroom management, lesson planning, student engagement, and more! Inside each Launch Your Classroom! book, there are effective strategies to begin the school year and keep students on track from start to finish.
More than just pedagogy, the series utilizes infographics, diagrams, and videos for concrete demonstrations of the concepts. Each book is around 100 pages, making it a quick read of practical advice that can be implemented as soon as possible. Created by educators for educators, Launch Your Classroom! is great for new teachers, international teachers, and teachers returning to the classroom.
The Launch Your Classroom! series is available in print and ebooks. Our ebooks can be read on a Kindle eReader or on any of Amazon’s free Kindle reading apps for the computer, tablet, or smartphone. Launch Your Classroom! ebooks are available for free download on the first Friday of every month.
Launch Your Classroom! Video Series
EPI also offers a free video series based on our Launch Your Classroom! books. Every Friday we air a new episode and our team of education experts covers a new topic that is timely and relevant. Each broadcast is less than 30 minutes long and features a question and answer session with one of EPI’s instructional experts. The Launch Your Classroom! Video Series includes practical advice, visual demonstrations of teaching methods, and interviews with real teachers and administrators.
