WORKSHOP PRACTICE STATEMENT
TechACCESS is aware that there are many opportunities available for online/webinar professional development. We have a strong belief that opportunities for hands-on, collaborative workshops are invaluable. Attending workshops with your peers and a TechACCESS staff person allows you to gain insight and knowledge from all participants.As we progress through the 2014-2015 school year, we will be gathering data to determine the need/demand for providing our workshops in differing formats. We look forward to your input!
