It’s hard to believe it, but (somehow) the year is almost over. 

The calendar year, that is. For North American schools, the holidays are less an end point than a waystation – a rest stop before heading into the final (and some might say longest) stretch of the school year. 

But there are still a few miles to go until that brief sleep, and in the meantime, there are some live webinars in November that we’d love for you to squeeze in before the turkey coma takes hold. 

Live November 2023 training webinars 

Before we dive in, just a quick heads up: We know that the timing for each event may not suit everyone. That’s why everyone who signs up will receive a recording the day after the live session so that you can view at your convenience. 

Hope to see you there!

Don’t forget about on-demand options 

We know that professional development is probably the last thing you want to think about during your hard-earned time off.
