EXPERIENCE THE AVID EFFECT
AVID Professional Learning is targeted and specific to what educators do every day: helping kids learn how to learn. With AVID Professional Learning, educators can immediately implement the strategies they experience and practice in the sessions to build relational capacity with their students. They are able to build a classroom culture where rigorous academic instruction combines with social and emotional support to accelerate learning and close the opportunity gap.
AVID has always been a community for educators to recharge, get inspiration, and find resilience. We are here for you, every step of the way.
VIRTUAL PROFESSIONAL LEARNING EVENTS OPEN TO ALL EDUCATORS
AVID ElevateXP offers timely professional learning sessions that are designed to help educators build a sense of community for their classroom and establish an engaging, rigorous classroom culture online.
Participants will gain new teaching strategies, tools, resources, and support that amplify best practices. Each session is comprised of four 3-hour modules, for 12 hours of learning. Scheduling is flexible, as modules may be booked consecutively, days apart, or weeks apart.
Visit AVIDelevatexp.org for available dates.
AVID DigitalXP is a digital professional learning experience where educators can interact and network in a Community of Practice, learn effective instructional strategies, and access AVID’s vast digital resources. Participants engage in three days of learning with AVID’s experienced facilitators, where they will also have time to plan for the new school year with their colleagues and Site Teams. During the school year, they have the opportunity to schedule one-to-one coaching and access resources on demand.
AVID DigitalXP provides an outstanding virtual experience and sets a new standard in professional learning for college and career readiness.
FACE-TO-FACE PROFESSIONAL LEARNING EVENTS
Open to all educators, this two-day training shows participants how to instill effective systemic change. It is designed for attendees to actively participate in assessing the structures, processes, and systems needed to create effective schools and college-ready cultures on their campuses.
AVID Summer Institute
Each year, more than 40,000 educators gather at one of 10 Institutes for AVID’s premiere training event. In addition to learning from some of the top AVID educators, participants collaborate and share experiences with colleagues from other schools and plan their campus implementation strategy for the coming year.
Due to the pandemic, and because safety is our number one priority, we have canceled AVID Summer Institute dates for 2021. We expect Summer Institute to resume in 2022.
Focused on implementing AVID schoolwide, these two-day regional or district trainings are designed to familiarize new AVID teachers (including AVID Elective, English, mathematics, science, history/social science, ELL, and other elective courses) with AVID methodologies to improve the performance of all students.
