Optional webinars will be offered each Wednesday to provide participants an opportunity to connect with peers, and discuss and process weekly learnings through facilitated discussions. While weekly webinars are optional, they are a great way to network and strategize with other professional development leaders across the globe.


In order to successfully complete this course and earn the Adobe Education Trainer credential, participants must complete a weekly assignment and provide weekly peer feedback. Participants must also successfully complete the final assignment. 

Final Assignment

Participants will apply the skills introduced throughout the course to design an effective and engaging professional development session that meets the needs of their particular audience. The final project is intended to be a practical and relevant tool that participants can immediately apply to their professional practice.


Upon successful completion of the final assignment and other course requirements, participants will be awarded a digital Adobe Education Trainer credential and will have access to the Adobe Education Trainer Group, an online community on the Adobe Education Exchange, where there will be opportunities to network with peers and have access to an exclusive Adobe Education Trainer tool kit.
