Weekly outline

  • Welcome to the ND Educational Hub


    Thank you for joining us in the world of online learning! The development of the ND Educational Hub and the content it holds is a collaborative effort among multiple states and state agencies.  We are thankful in all the assistance we received in order to be able to create the North Dakota Educational Hub.

    The ND Educational Hub is constructed in three domains; Statewide Professional Development and TrainingsIndividualized Professional Development Courses for Credit and REA/School District Specific Content. In each of the domains there are a wide array of class offerings to meet a variety of needs. The Statewide Professional Development and Trainings are where educators from across the State will find information, courses and trainings free of charge to participate in such as the Science of Reading. Individualized Professional Development Courses for Credit are developed for individual teachers to enroll in, are asynchronous and are intended to meet educator's interests in the field of education. Lastly, the Educational Hub provides REA/School District Specific Content. Working with your school administrators and REA/DPI Hub Personnel, school districts have the ability to request customized PD or Courses to be provided directly through the ND Educational Hub for book studies and other professional development options.
