    • PBS TeacherLine

      PBS TeacherLine is one of many ways that Arkansas PBS supports the professional development needs of Arkansas educators. Funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education, PBS TeacherLine offers research-driven and standards-based professional development through facilitated, online courses and collaborative learning communities. These opportunities are designed to help PreK-12 teachers acquire the skills they need to prepare students for successful futures.

      While each course offered through PBS TeacherLine is worth a total number of hours, professional development credit and hours are awarded at the discretion of an individual's local school district. Graduate credit may also be earned in partnership with participating institutions.

      * PBS TeacherLine courses are offered at no cost through funding provided by ADE and ArkansasIDEAS. Please note only one course per term will be funded; therefore, a learner may only take four (4) courses per year at no cost.
