About Learning Forward Ohio

Who we are

Learning Forward shows you how to plan, implement, and measure high-quality professional learning so you and your team can achieve success with your system, your school, and your students.

We are the only professional association devoted exclusively to those who work in educator professional development. We help our members leverage the power of professional learning to affect positive and lasting change.

Professional learning definition

“Learning Forward’s focus in this new law is its improved definition of professional learning,” said Stephanie Hirsh, executive director of Learning Forward. “We’ve long advocated for a definition of professional development in federal policy that aligns with our Standards for Professional Learning. We concentrated our advocacy energy on this element of the legislation because that definition applies to the references to professional development that appear throughout the law.”
