    • In-Person workshop = 5 CECH

The Department of Education, of which the SD State Library is a division, is excited to present a new professional learning platform.

All items in Instructure Canvas are considered "courses" within the platform even if they are webinars, workshops, conferences, or in-person events.

If you have never enrolled in a DOE/SDSL Canvas course, please email Amanda to get your email address into the system. You will soon receive further enrollment instructions via email.
