Open Trainings open the world to you

In your work environment, you interact often with people who are a lot like you. You are, after all, working in a similar field, with the same student body, within the same age/grade range, in a particular school, in a shared geographic location.

In contrast, each NSRF Open Training typically includes:

  • participants from a range of early childhood, elementary, middle, high, preK-12, and higher education,
  • a mixture of classroom teachers, administrators, coaches, professional development folks, and others,
  • people from public and private schools,
  • participants from “poorer” schools and districts, and others from more comfortable places,
  • some who are attending voluntarily and others who have been “strongly encouraged to attend” by an administrator,
  • educators from all over the country and sometimes even from outside the U.S, and
  • sometimes a few participants from business or other arenas who want to learn from and with educators.
