FDLRS and FIN personnel provide professional learning opportunities to educators focused on refining teacher practice and increasing student achievement.

Professional Learning events are aligned to Florida's Professional Development Protocol Evaluation.

FDLRS and FIN Specialists support educators in their study of effective learning and teaching practices by providing needs assessments, multi-faceted workshops, facilitation of local learning communities, implementation and coaching sessions, and follow-up support.

The professional learning activities are offered in face-to-face and virtual settings and feature a variety of training levels including awareness, in-depth, skill development and implementation.
