Cognia Learning Community
Community in Action
As educators, we’re all in this together to improve leadership and instructional practice, providing the best opportunities for all learners. The Cognia Learning Community offers you and your staff an innovative professional learning experience and a platform to share and engage with peers locally and from around the world.
Convenient, high quality professional learning
Cognia offers a new approach to professional learning: The Cognia Learning Community with built-in coaching. This 24/7, online platform offers relevant, differentiated professional development when and where it’s convenient for busy educators. The Cognia Learning Community, one of the many benefits of membership, couples self-directed learning with the ability to connect with your peers for direct problem solving.
Why the Cognia Learning Community?
We have long believed that the best professional learning experiences should:
- Occur over time
- Be personalized to meet the needs of the adult learner
- Address diverse learning styles
- Provide an embedded social learning component
Cognia’s professional learning experience delivers just that. It connects the point of learning with application in the classroom, solving an enduring problem with PD—its lack of relevance and applicability to teachers’ daily practice.

Take a tour of the Cognia Learning Community
Life doesn’t slow down for professional learning. You and your professional staff need it to be ready when you are. The Cognia Learning Community offers synchronous and asynchronous online learning to help hone your craft, along with opportunities to network and get creative ideas that teachers can bring into the classroom. It’s all available 24/7.
Talk about teaching with teachers—whether they’re colleagues at your school or educators on the other side of the world. Every participant can engage in discussions that enrich their own learning and their students’ success. Participate in dialogue on a variety of educational topics with others in your institution or among the wider Cognia network. Create a new discussion on a topic or question important to you!
Users can log in at their convenience, and go at their own pace. They’ll pursue their professional development with interactive Learning Labs—sessions to spark thinking about a topic, reflect on their current understanding, tinker with models and tools, and grow their insights before applying the ideas in the classroom.
Learners get a snapshot of learning activity and progress, view community connections, and see important events and announcements. The dashboard is a springboard for all interactions, and for accessing other Cognia tools and resources. Plus, leaders can easily see their team’s progress.
Join the Cognia Global Network—a worldwide education community dedicated to expanding opportunities for learners. Get personal guidance and access to a comprehensive collection of services and solutions you can use today to enhance learning, effect change, and deliver excellence for leaders, teachers, and learners.
I think teachers are just really embracing that opportunity not only given the platform, but given the practices that Cognia has helped us employ. I just leaped right in—this is what we need!”Vanessa Diaz-ValenciaAssistant Director of Curriculum, Instruction, & ProgramsHartford School District
