Defined Academy

With student priorities and educational standards constantly evolving, it’s critical educators are given the training and tools they need to keep up. Defined Academy tailors project based learning to your district’s professional development needs so instructors can complete continuing education hours while expanding their curriculums.

Support Instructor Development

How it Works

Instructors with Defined Academy work through a three-step journey from the basic foundations of hands-on learning to earning credentials. Each step is uniquely designed to deepen understanding, increase leadership, and align district, educator, and student goals.

Explore Defined Academy

Key Components

Depending on an instructor’s experience with project based learning, there are three stepping stones to the Defined Academy learning experience:


Educators dive into the basics and applications of PBL, as well as its purpose, design, and implementation.

Deeper Learning

Educators receive guided coaching to refine their practices in one-on-one as well as group settings.


Educators show their expertise by completing micro-credential activities which count towards district certification hours.

Why Choose Defined Academy?

Teachers need support and resources just as much as their students do. When teachers are given the opportunity to strengthen their own learning and understanding, those benefits immediately translate to the classroom.

With Defined Academy, educators explore their personal specialties alongside district requirements. It’s the ideal way to combine educational creativity and government standards.


The Learning Never Ends

Despite what your students may think, teachers don’t know everything. The key to inspire deeper learning is to pass on the skills of hands-on self-education. When instructor skills and understanding grow, student skills and understanding grow as well. The connections are clear. Supporting educators is vital to a healthy learning environment.
