Professional Development Registration

The DC Collaborative, in partnership with its members, offers Professional Development Workshops to all DC public and public charter school teachers, which focus on dance, visual arts, humanities, theater and music and how best to integrate these disciplines into their teaching practices. These workshops take place throughout the year at the hosting cultural organization and through DC Collaborative Professional Development series events. In addition to Professional Development Workshops offered by members, the DC Collaborative has hosted Professional Development Institutes which are day-long sessions focused on arts integration teaching techniques and cultural empathy/awareness. Most teacher registration costs are covered by DC Collaborative or the Providing Member Organization, however some exceptions apply. 

If you are not a DC public or public charter school teacher but you are interested in any of these opportunities, please contact Clarissa@dccollaborative.org who will connect you with the member organization directly.
