- We will discuss our recent efforts to catalyze development of a cadre of school-based teacher leaders through online and face-to-face professional development. In particular, we will focus on development of a sequence of online workshops that can be used as resources for professional development in participants' home districts.
We are currently offering two workshops. The $100 workshop fee for each participant is paid by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
