Professional Development Opportunities

YIPPEE for Professional Learning!

Dates: Ongoing, online, and asynchronous - Join at any time

Refresh and recharge your professional toolkit by exploring the YIPPEE Exchange Marketplace. YIPPEE is a first-of-its-kind digital marketplace designed to connect educators to a host of free entrepreneurship education resources and to one another. As part of the YIPPEE community, educators are empowered to explore a wide range of products in a single place and share their experiences to ensure the best products make their way to student.

Educators are invited to explore YIPPEE and learn how to bring these tremendous resources to their own classrooms. Participants may select to pursue any or all of the following professional development options based on their own time and interests:

Option 1: Product Review

Did the lesson plan generate ideas for you of how you might use the product, etc.); AND (2) How will you adapt this lesson plan to meet your specific learning goals and the needs of your students?
