Professional Development

A Resource for Professionals

West Bay Collaborative is a resource for professional development opportunities for educators and other service providers across the state. We offer comprehensive trainings, workshops, and seminars on topics of interest to our districts. Some of our most recent trainings have included Wilson Reading introduction, Wilson Level I Reading Certification and Wilson Fundations. Other trainings included non-violent crisis intervention training as well as technology in the classroom.

West Bay Consultant & Presenter Services deliver professional development specific to district needs, either in district or at the Collaborative. Our trainers are all skilled trainers and excellent presenters, and are familiar with the educational environment in Rhode Island.

Amongst the topics offered in recent workshops are: differentiated instruction, project based/inquiry learning, teaching math in the common core, strategies for teaching problem solving, introduction to computers, utilizing technology in the classroom, and others.
