Virtual Workshops

In response to the changes in education inspired by the COVID-19 outbreak, we have redesigned our resources to best support teachers and leaders. We know you value our expertise, specific guides and strategies, and examples with resources. To make this expertise available, we have moved our work virtually both synchronously and asynchronously to best provide opportunities to help you adapt in this challenging environment.

Kupu Hou Academy offers a variety of professional development workshops for Virtual and Distance Deeper Learning instruction. These are one and two-hour workshops for preschool through high school teachers, department heads and school leaders, led by Mid-Pacific Deeper Learning expert Dr. Mark Hines and other certified Kupu Hou Academy instructors. These workshops are most effective when they are bundled with a tailored eight-hour block of small group coaching to best support the implementation of the topics. All workshops may be custom-designed for specific grade levels or subject areas.

Pricing for the workshops can be found in the “Register” tab above.
