Webinar Series for Educators

The SMA teacher webinar series focuses on various topics of interest to our educational community. Topics were selected based on previous attendee feedback and our various conversations with educators over the years. Each session is 1.5 hours in length, including a question and answer period.

Topics include everything from general teaching tips to specific information for hands-on programs in the areas of ethics, communication, business, student services, and much more. We help instructors and administrators provide the best learning environment that they can, and have fun doing it.
