TASL Webinars


TASL is excited to begin offering our members webinar opportunities for convenient online professional development. Webinars will be hosted by TASL members or special guest presenters. We hope to offer two options each month, and most webinars will last between 30 minutes to an hour. Participants who tune into the live webinar will receive a certificate of attendance, though PD credit is up to the discretion of your school or district.
