A Note on Courses 

We are excited to bring you another year jam-packed with new programs and hybrid learning options!

Course Formats: Our courses reflect course formats with a variety of time commitments and workloads to accommodate the needs of our diverse community of educators– from asynchronous online learning modules Building Blocks for Global Citizenship to our signature live seminar series. Please take a moment to read about the course format to decide if it’s right for you.

Health and Safety:  We’ve planned to hold most live programs in-person (unless otherwise noted in the course description) with all public health and safety precautions in place. However, the wellbeing of our learning community is always our primary concern. As with all learning institutions, we’ll continue to monitor state & local developments and will make changes as necessary. These changes will be communicated to registrants via email. 

Graduate Credit, PDPs, & Other Frequently Asked Questions: Please see the FAQ page at the end of the course catalog for more information on graduate credit registration, professional development points, and other common questions about Primary Source programs!
