Summer Learning Series, 2020

Explore, Uncover and Learn!

We had missed seeing you over 2020—both one-on-one, and at national and provincial conferences. In lieu of in-person meetings and events, we hosted a week-long series of complimentary live webinars designed for us to Explore, Share, and Learn together.

Daily from August 24th to 28th, one of your Assessment & Technology Consultants held a 30-minute live webinar followed by a 15-minute Q & A session (45 minutes total).

Please feel free to view the recordings. Should you have questions, please reach out to the presenter and/or the Assessment & Technology Consultant for your region.
