We are working alongside our colleagues in the GVSU College of Education and across the state to offer webinars to assist educators as they continue to move teaching and learning forward while away from their classrooms. While some webinars may be suited for specific teachers, administrators, or support staff, all webinars are free to all educators. New webinars will be added as they become available. At the bottom of the page you will also find links to recordings for previously held webinars.
