Tools for Teaching

Santa Cruz, CA

November 13-14, 2020


Coronavirus Update

The November Tools for Teaching is now a webinar!

School schedules and COVID protocols are too hectic and perhaps dangerous to ask you to travel to Santa Cruz for our annual Fall workshop. We have decided to conduct the same workshop online in the form of a webinar. This will be our fourth such webinar since March and we are confident that you will get equal training to that of the in-person workshop. Thank you for understanding and we look forward working with all of you.


If you previously enrolled in the workshop, you will automatically be enrolled in this webinar. Please check for an email from for details.

If you are a participant and have any questions,
