Greetings! I’m Sheila B Robinson, AEA365 Lead Curator and sometimes Saturday contributor with exciting news about the Summer Learning Series. Anyone who knows me knows that I am passionate about professional learning and love to see opportunities to learn from esteemed colleagues.
As many of you know, AEA has held a Summer Evaluation Institute in Atlanta, GA for about as long as I remember. Of course, it had to be canceled in 2020, but here we are in 2021, not quite ready to resume in-person events but fully prepared to offer a digital professional development experience.
New for 2021 is the Summer Learning Series – not a conference, but rather a series of in-depth 3-hour workshops scheduled from May 21 through the summer months with plenty of choice baked into the program. Choose as many as you want according to your own budget. Choose workshops that are scheduled all on one day, or others that feature two 90-minute sessions on different days. Choose workshops at your level – beginner, advanced or all audiences.
New this year are workshops with a Social Justice focus. These are clearly labeled on the Summer Learning Series site.
At the time of this writing, more workshops are being scheduled, so register for your favorites now before they fill up, but check back later for additional choices.
