On-demand, pre-recorded webinars, and by-request opportunities are also available to meet educators' professional learning needs. Most by-request offerings are virtual, both synchronous and asynchronous.​ Professional learning events are updated quarterly, and educational stakeholders are encouraged to visit the site often to review the latest agency-wide offerings.
