OnRamps provides a variety of evidence-based professional development opportunities for K12 teachers, high school campus and district staff, and higher education faculty to increase their impact on student outcomes whether at the local- or state-level.
Our professional development offerings extend beyond what we provide high school teachers who teach our dual enrollment courses. There, OnRamps Instructors, as they are known, receive yearlong professional learning and development shaped by research with a focus on deepening their understanding of our course content to ensure fidelity of implementation and on advancing instructional approaches to help students learn in and outside of the classroom.
The OnRamps Distance Learning Catalog is a series of online, self-paced professional development modules designed to support middle and high school teachers with instructional practice in distance and hybrid learning environments. An hour of CPE credit will be awarded upon completion of each model; over 20 modules are available for educators.
OnRamps Summit convenes OnRamps Instructors; K12 educators, counselors, and administrators; and higher education leaders to deepen partnerships and share best practices to advance learning, instruction, and college- and career-readiness outcomes.
In this annual day-long event—typically held over the summer—participants and session presenters have the opportunity to examine the topic theme of the year while sharing their unique experiences and research from secondary and higher education perspective.
