Workshops

Overview

UCAPP workshops are designed to offer an extension of our program courses and internship opportunities based on various key topics that challenge aspiring educational leaders. All workshops are optional and require no pre- or post-work.  Participation may count toward the internship. Seats at all workshops are reserved on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once a workshop is full, there is a wait list which will reserve a seat for you if one becomes available.  Finally, each workshop is designed to be an engaging, hands-on learning experience that uses simulations, case studies, and authentic resources.
