You all have great ideas on how to improve teaching and learning for your students. Why not devote a PD day towards turning your ideas into reality?

TeacherHack is a one day program that turns professional development days into hands-on, productive opportunities for teachers to carry-out their ideas while learning about the process of innovation. Using our innovation canvas, you will develop a small-scale project specifically catered to the needs of your students and/or classroom. We provide the coaching and a structured framework, you get a professional development that better serves you!
