Courses & Instructors

  • What is your policy regarding academic integrity?

    ePD Zone courses are designed to provide maximum flexibility by allowing participants to access and complete courses at anytime anywhere, and with that flexibility comes great responsibility. Our Code of Academic Integrity outlines our expectations of participants who choose to participate in our courses. All ePd Zone courses include two Attributions of Academic Integrity--one at the beginning and one at the end--that participants must attest to. For more information, visit: https://www.epdzone.com/pages/code-of-academic-integrity

  • Who is involved with the development of courses?

    We maintain an active advisory committee consisting of current and former school district leaders. All courses are identified based on the input of the advisory committee and their assessment of the needs and goals for professional development communicated to them by current school district leaders. Courses are designed and refined in conjunction with feedback from the advisory committee.

  • What are the minimum qualifications of instructors?

    All ePD Zone instructors are top academic professionals who are experts in their field. At a minimum, they must have a master’s degree or higher from an accredited university and have five or more years experience as a classroom teacher and/or school leader. Biographies of each instructor are included on each course detail page.

  • How do you evaluate the effectiveness & quality of courses?

    All courses include a course evaluation survey that all participants must fill out following the completion of a course. The results of these surveys are regularly reviewed in collaboration with our advisory committee to ensure that all courses meet our high standards for effectiveness and quality.
