Center for Literacy - Online PD Banner

Housed in The Center for Literacy, the Akron Center for E-Learning (AKCEL), designs, develops and builds online professional development courses and resources for literacy educators and parents. In school-based study groups, teachers work together to use online materials and attend face-to-face meetings as they learn research-based instructional strategies. Online professional development engages teachers in new and innovative ways and prepares them for greater success in the classroom, yielding long-term benefits.


Our online courses utilize a supportive learning design that makes it easy for educators to move through the content, focusing on what is most essential while accommodating teacher's busy schedules. For more information regarding design & development for your organization, email us at centerforliteracy@uakron.edu.
