2021-2022 UVM Tarrant Institute Professional Learning Series

Thank you for joining us for this series of free online workshops covering topics of immediate relevance to educators nationwide. Each month, we host webinars with in-classroom practitioners and scholars, on a variety of topics with immediate relevance for educators. Attendees should expect to participate in interactive reflection and tool-based activities at each event. Additionally, attendees will leave each webinar with a living document of curated and crowd-sourced resources for further study. We will be announcing our 2021-2022 lineup in the fall.
