Course Round-Up: Summer Learning for Educators

A round-up of summer learning courses and professional development opportunities for educators.

By Calli Welsch May 17, 2017

Looking to learn something new this summer? 

Maybe you want to develop your personal learning network on social media, read a few new books, or take a course alongside other educators.

Thanks to technology, we can take learning online and collaborate with educators around the country and the world. Plus, we can do many of these events or tasks in our pajamas, or even by the pool!

Below, we have collected some Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) as well as open courseware, so you can choose your own learning adventure this summer.
