Educators, Counseling and Social Work Professionals - Enhance your professional skills with our one-day noncredit seminars, short-term certificate programs, or a special conference.
Take a look at the opportunities we have available to you this fall!
Education Conference — Dec. 3
Competency-Based Education . . . New Hampshire leading the way! Competency-based education, an educator-led reform, is taking root in K-12 schools and districts across the country. The concept behind competency-based education is simple: students’ mastery of learning targets is the best measure of learning, not the number of hours spent in a classroom.
Hear the national and local perspectives on the next generation in teaching and learning for teachers and school administrators. Featured speakers Susan Patrick, President and CEO of International Association for K-12 Online Learning and Joe DiMartino, Founder and President of Center for Secondary School Redesign will inspire and inform participants.
Register soon! To qualify for early discounted tuition of $225, register on or before November 25. After November 25, the tuition is $250.
