With all of our initiatives, we take a multi-prong approach to providing professional learning opportunities.
Each summer since 2018, the EMC has offered a week-long, in-person track at our Pacific Region Learning Summit. Participants engage for approximately 30 hours in activities designed so they can apply UDL and Accessibility to their own course.
