Professional Learning Opportunities

Professional Learning Opportunities match pre-service teachers with experienced educators in the community. These opportunities build on students' coursework and field experiences to prepare them for entry into the teaching profession.

2020-2021 Opportunities

Due to the situation of Covid-19, many Professional Learning Opportunity placements are not available this year. We are working with our partners to provide as many opportunities as possible. Those with a red "learn more" button are available for the 2020-2021 year.
