Professional Learning Workshops & Events

We believe in professional learning that doesn't suck. Nobody likes sit and get, death-by-PowerPoint trainings. You wouldn't want your students to be bored and disengaged, so why should you be? Our workshops are designed with adult learning in mind.

With our events, you learn from other as much as you learn from us. We hope and expect you to develop relationships and networks with your fellow attendees. Being a principal can often feel lonely and isolated, but it doesn't have to be. 

Our Promise To You

When you participate in an AWSP Professional Learning Network, you get:

  • Timely, relevant and engaging professional learning
  • Never boring sit-n-get
  • Personalized and differentiated to meet your needs
  • Directly applicable to your context
  • Time to interact with colleagues
  • Opportunities to discuss and engage with real problems of practice
  • Less theory and more action

The best part? You don't have to take our word for it. We've got survey data to back it all up. 

Something For Everyone

School Leadership Continuum

Principal Leadership Continuum

You wouldn't teach calculus to a fourth grader, would you? Each of our workshops is tailored for where you are in your career. Meet with principals and assistant principals who are in the same place you are, struggling with the same issues, and experiencing the same frustrations and doubts. 

Most of our events fall along our School Leadership Continuum.
