Making an impact

Hear from educators whose practice have been positively impacted by our innovative approach to learning and professional development.

Valuable workshop experience

It was all so valuable! The workshop was interesting and practical. We left with great resources to use in the classroom as well. I wouldn't change anything - the variety of activities and presenters complemented each other. The location was comfortable and the food was delicious and generous.
