Global Professional Learning: June 2020

Due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and the changing global health response, we are continuing to work with host schools to determine dates and locations to meet the needs of our global educators.

While we look towards a future with unrestricted travel, we also acknowledge that the health and safety of students, teachers and families remains a priority. Therefore, we are sharing upcoming Professional Learning dates and locations but are limiting registration until travel to that location is deemed safe.

Please mark your calendars with the dates and locations you would like to attend, and visit the International Professional Learning page for updates and registration links as they become available.
