Online Workshops

Many of the face-to-face workshops and presentations offered by OTAN have been repurposed to meet today's virtual environment. Virtual presentations offer information on any given topic in a 1- to 2-hour format (similar to a conference or professional development meeting). Virtual workshops are generally 2 to 3 hours with breaks, led by OTAN Subject Matter Experts (SME's) and, like the face-to-face option, can be delivered in one or more parts as a hands-on workshop.

Virtual options can also be scheduled as in-service professional development or open to the field with the "host" site having priority on the topics. If you do not see the professional development workshop you need, OTAN can customize its list of sessions.
