Participate in just one course or attend a pathway that provides in-depth knowledge in a specific area. Several pathways provide a blended approach of face-to-face learning and online learning. As always, all of the processional learning opportunities we offer are supported by research and are provided by specialists in their field. We believe that high quality professional learning will enhance your teaching practice and greatly benefit your students.
