Oregon’s educators are deeply committed to helping all students achieve and reach their fullest potential. OEA is committed to establishing OEA members as the driving force for education and professional excellence, quality teaching and learning, and innovation throughout schools and classrooms in the state. High-quality professional learning helps educators improve how they support students, is rooted in collaboration between educators, and is relevant to the work educators do each and every day. OEA offers a wide range of learning opportunities for members to increase their knowledge and skills across a variety of content areas.
OEA professional learning is developed and led by active members working in schools and classrooms across the state. These learning opportunities are offered to active members as a benefit of your union membership. To get started:
In response to educators’ concerns about safe, welcoming, and inclusive schools (summarized in the report, A Crisis of Disrupted Learning), OEA provides professional learning to support educators in creating school and classroom environments that are safe and successful for both students and educators.
These opportunities are intended to give educators an understanding of the 5 Core Propositions that were developed by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) professional learning aims to reduce disparities in our classrooms and schools as well as advance equity in the profession.
Quality classroom assessment practices renew a focus on day-to-day, minute-by-minute learning that improves student outcomes.
OEA offers professional learning on a variety of additional topics to support our members.
