Voyager Sopris Learning® announced today that its complimentary webinar series is open for registration. The fall 2014 webinars focus on ways to improve student outcomes—both academically and socially—and prepare students for college and career.

Cutting-edge speakers connect educators to new research and practical strategies that help students and teachers meet more rigorous performance expectations in literacy and math. Topics include effective strategies for teaching writing in the content areas, activities to build fluent readers, the neuroscience behind reading, best practices for integrating technology in the classroom, math fact fluency, strategies for English language learners, early childhood education, preventing cyberbullying, and creating positive school climates. Each presentation is designed to provide participants with strategies that can be applied in the classroom immediately following the webinars. Interested educators may register for the webinars starting today at http://info.voyagersopris.com/2014-webinar-series.

The series begins Monday, September 15, 2014, and ends Friday, November 21, 2014. All webinars take place from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. EST and are recorded for those who register but cannot attend. Webinar attendees can expect an interactive experience in which presenters poll the audience to gather insights and offer a live question-and-answer period at the end.

All webinars are recorded so those who register may listen at their convenience and share the recordings with colleagues. Archived recordings are posted at www.voyagersopriswebinars.com.

"The continuing Voyager Sopris Learning webinar series allows educators nationwide the opportunity to interact directly with leading authors, educational consultants, and creators of outstanding programs and professional development," said George Logue, president of Voyager Sopris Learning. "The multimedia format provides the ability for webinar participants to customize solutions for their particular schools or classrooms. With these complimentary professional development opportunities, teacher support is ongoing, comprehensive, and flexible."    

Renowned authors and education trainers/consultants who will present this fall include: Louisa Moats, Ph.D.; Jan Hasbrouck, Ph.D.; Jeffrey Sprague, Ph.D.; Lucy Hart Paulson, Ph.D.; Vicki Gibson, Ph.D.; Roland Good, Ph.D.; Nancy Chapel Eberhardt, Ph.D.; Stephanie Gottwald, Ph.D.; John Woodward, Ph.D.; Joan Sedita, M.Ed.; and Michele Douglass, Ph.D., to name a few.

Giardino, Ph.D., psychologist, Greater Denver Area, Colorado. "Registering for webinars is easy, and the expertise and professionalism of the presenters is very impressive. I utilize the webinars because they give me the opportunity to explore a variety of topics that I would not otherwise have a chance to study."
