Professional Development at Boston Public LIbrary

One of the great resources for geographers in our region is the Norman Leventhal Center at the Boston Public Library, which houses an internationally significant map collection. It is a partner of the Massachusetts Geographic Alliance and provides a rich array of outreach and education programs.

The Leventhal Center has recently announced a series of professional-development opportunities especially for in-service teachers of geography and related fields. These programs are also an excellent way for BSU geography students to enhance their own future prospects. Note that one of the workshops can even be taken for graduate credit through Framingham State University.

Find all of the workshops on the center's Professional Development page.

Upcoming workshops of particular interest are:

The Power of Maps: ArcGIS in the ClassroomMarch 5 and 19 plus online time
$75, plus an additional $75 for graduate credit
