— What is it?
What is Intentional Learning? 
Intentional learning happens as an outcome of activities in which learning is the main and deliberate objective. For instance, if you wish to learn a foreign language, you would choose to pick up a book and check the definitions of new terms you come across to expand your vocabulary. Conversely, incidental learning happens inadvertently and occurs when you gradually learn new vocabulary while sporadically conversing with someone in a foreign language, but you do not make an effort to proactively learn new words every time. Let’s look deeper into how we facilitate intentional learning at Stride Professional Development Center. 
— Our Vision
Intentional Learning in Our Professional Development Courses 
Intentional learning is tied to proactive and independent learning, which includes planning, implementing, and analyzing your learning experience. In our professional development courses, intentional learning will typically involve:
You Deserve the Success that Comes from Choice.


Setting precise learning objectives to better comprehend a particular concept.

Self-reflecting on a regular basis to check your comprehension and make the learning experience more successful for you.

— Our Benefits
Benefits of Intentional Learning
Three benefits that stand out and make an impact.
  • More beneficial,
  • More efficient,
  • More enjoyable.


Aspiring Teachers


Intentional learning is more productive than incidental learning where you might only pick up techniques or ideas at random from your day-to-day teaching life. For instance, if you want to learn about redefining an established school culture, intentional learning in our Student and School Culture courses will purposefully provide you with handy resources to make observable positive changes to your campus culture.


Intentional learning is much more efficient. You can quickly grasp a concept if you are deliberate about it, but you will require far more time and energy to understand the same concept if done over the long course of your educator journey. Intentional learning will allow you to understand a highly technical or complex topic a lot more quickly and effectively.


Intentional learning is definitely more enjoyable! With our courses, you'll be proactively engaged in the learning process through tools such as our tailored video-based materials, audiobooks and podcasts, live online events, and collaborative opportunities that create an interactive training experience.
