Professional Development

"Maps to me are now dynamic, vibrant, alive and worth engaging”
--Teacher Workshop Participant

The Norman B. Leventhal Map Center offers a variety of professional development opportunities for educators. All workshops expand educators’ views of the ways in which they can use maps, not simply to teach geography, but opening up the possibilities for using these resources as starting points for a variety of lessons in various subject areas.
