Professional Development

National Liberty Museum Professional Development ProgramsTeaching is a demanding job. Our cutting-edge training gives you the tools and educational resources you need to succeed. During our Professional Development Workshops, expert presenters provide instruction that supports targeted, standards-aligned learning objectives. The workshops may include case studies, facilitated discussion, lesson planning and practice, exploration of the National Liberty Museum art and exhibits, and new academic resources you can use immediately in the classroom.


Full-day workshops provide up to 15 Act 48 Continuing Professional Education hours approved by both the Pennsylvania and New Jersey Departments of Education.

To accommodate your busy schedule, full-day professional development workshops are held on Saturdays between 9:00am-3:30pm at the Museum. We introduced a new pricing structure in 2015, which will continue in 2017. The workshop fee for previous participants is $85, with a $10 reward toward Museum merchandise if you refer a new participant to this workshop. The workshop fee for first-time participants is $60. The cost for a sandwich boxed-lunch at the workshop is $15, or you can choose not to purchase a lunch.

Registration for our Fall 2017 Professional Development Workshops is now closed. Please stay tuned for details regarding our Professional Development Program for 2018.
