Unprofessional Development celebrates teachers as professional learners whose daily work with young people is vital and bold.
Our mission is to bring project-based learning into all classrooms through unique workshops and powerful hands-on learning experiences for educators. We help teachers engage young people in work that responds to authentic problems and real-world questions, and believe that making, building and design are pathways to an empathetic, socially just education.
We share curricula for STEAM-oriented projects and design challenges, intellectual sparks for all grade levels, and an extensive collection of readings and videos about creativity as a practice. We lead workshops to help educators launch real, community-oriented classroom projects that are aligned with specific learning objectives, and host events in inspiring locations that ignite conversations about pedagogy in new contexts.
