Professional Development


Professional Development


What do you want to know that will improve your practice?  Our professional development opportunities are designed to bring educators together for practical, collaborative, sustaining and transformational learning.  

At the Upper Valley Graduate School of Education, we believe that professional education is most meaningful and useful when the experience leads to practice that is demonstratively better   UVGSE offers a number of opportunities for professional development leading to graduate credit. 

For school teams of five or more, a 15 percent discount will be applied to each participant’s tuition.
