ABOUT OTAN TRAINING: Workshop Descriptions

Workshop title An OTAN Presentation/s 
Workshop description An OTAN presentation can be scheduled at an Adult Education event taking place at a WIOA-funded site. If your site is hosting a local professional development event (e.g., back-to-school, in-service training, etc.), consider asking OTAN to present. In addition to available OTAN resources, a presentation can focus on technology integration or any other topic listed as a Face-to-Face workshop. Find out what your staff wish to learn AND fill those needs with an OTAN presentation.

Presentations are generally 1 to 1.5 hours in length and the set up is "show and tell" - where the audience is observing the presenter. If you'd prefer a longer time or would like a "hands on" session, consider scheduling one of the Workshops listed on the OTAN site. 
Session length 1 - 1.5 hours 
Format Events & Conferences: Links to professional development opportunities by California leadership projects and professional organizations. 

To find out more about any of these workshops, including dates and times offered, please check the California Adult Education Professional Development Web site. This site has information on OTAN offered training, as well as training offered by CALPRO and CASAS.
