Day 2 Agenda: Professional Development Stream

For Teachers, ELearning, Head of Department and Schoolbox Heroes

We are excited to announce that our Professional Services Team will be running a dedicated Schoolbox Professional Development stream on Day 2 of Meetup.  

For the past year, we have been working hard to develop a mix of different training solutions for the Schoolbox community, including the successful launch of our new Intensive Training courses.

The Professional Development stream is intended for eLearning and Teaching teams, with each interactive, hands-on session and face to face workshop designed to give you tips and tricks on ways to optimise use of Schoolbox to achieve your teaching goals.  

With positive feedback from the recent User Forums, the team has developed a mix of sessions to solidify fundamental skills.

All participants will receive a certificate on completion which can be used as evidence of professional learning.

Once you have purchased your Meetup 2022 ticket, you will receive an email with a link to register for the individual Professional Development sessions that you wish to attend.

Please be aware that as these sessions do run concurrently, it is important to accurately indicate your preferred sessions to reserve your place.

Numbers in each session are limited, and sessions will only be open to registered participants on the day.
