What professional development options does Panorama offer?
Data is only as valuable as it is actionable, and because we know that understanding a tool is an essential part of folding it into your daily routine, Panorama provides many options for training educators on how to use our platforms, analyze data, and action plan. Below you'll find a list of our professional development options available from our Teaching and Learning team. They range from a variety of prices (including free!) and time commitments, because we know that what works for one educator or district does not work for everyone. If you have specific questions about the offerings, please reach out to your Panorama contact or firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more!
The following professional development options are designed to support the introduction of Panorama to educators and key stakeholders who will use data to support students. Whether it’s generating understanding and investment in Panorama’s research-backed survey instruments or building data literacy skills, these resources can help set the stage for a successful implementation of data-driven practice with Panorama.
Custom Virtual Workshops
Panorama offers a large menu of paid, personalized professional development sessions for our partners. This is the best way to get a custom professional development session for your staff, led by one of Panorama's experienced facilitators. While we work together to plan your session, you'll have the opportunity to decide the audience of your session, as well as the focus and length of the training.
These interactive group learning experiences are intended to help you and your team build the investment, knowledge, and skills that will support you in using Panorama's tools long-term as you continue to support students. Sessions can be designed around data inquiry, product functionality, and taking action, and focus on any of Panorama's products, like Social-Emotional Learning and Student Success. Learn more about the available sessions for the 2020-2021 school year here.

The Panorama Community
The Panorama Community is here to support you with free, virtual learning opportunities led by members of our Teaching & Learning team.
Community Workshops are virtual, interactive sessions designed to support you in using Panorama's tools. We hold multiple sessions a week and invite a variety of our partners to join - this allows you to learn from each other while you learn more about best practices from Panorama.
We hold sessions weekly about setting up your surveys, reviewing and analyzing your survey reports, and getting started with Student Success.
The Panorama Learning Community (PLC) is a collective learning space for leaders, educators, and school community members as they seek to holistically and collaboratively support the diverse needs of every student in their school community.
These learning experiences prioritize the professional development of leaders, educators, and counseling staff, while centering connection and racial justice in all our programming. Whether you partner with Panorama or are simply focused on how to support every student in your school/district community, we recommend that you attend these sessions!
