Leadership for Learning

The PASA Leadership for Learning course is designed to provide the participant with a framework to transform education in the classroom, building and/or district. The course will be offered in three modules, each with both one-site and virtual components, and include an evidence-fair component. In addition to module attendance, each participant will be asked to create a culminating activity/project that focuses on how advanced technologies and Universal Design Learning (UDL) engages and empowers all students in successful learning experiences.

(*Each session: 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.; lunch provided. 2017-18 course for new registrants begins on August 11.)
