Train the Trainer Co-Teaching Workshops

We offer intense two day train the trainer workshops that provide a foundation in co-teaching. We encourage participants to enroll as a team – preferably with 3-5 colleagues so that they can discuss adaptations, modifications, changes, and implications in their own program. A team also provides support as participants return to their institution/school district and begin to implement co-teaching in their own program. Co-Teaching should be a programmatic shift – not an individual initiative. We offer Train the Trainer workshops with a focus in:
