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’s art and exhibits, and new academic resources you can use immediately in the classroom. Our Act 48 Professional Development Workshops are approved by both the Pennsylvania and New Jersey Departments of Education.

We do not have any Professional Development Workshops scheduled for the remainder of the 2017-2018 school year. We are working hard to restructure and enhance our program so that it meets the needs of a broader range of participants.
