Fall 2021 Webinars & Workshops

Virtual Virginia invites public school educators throughout the Commonwealth to attend the Let’s VIBE series of free webinars and workshops throughout the fall.

Let’s VIBE includes three professional learning series that focus on different themes in blended education. Webinars and workshops are presented by VVA in partnership with Canvas and the Virginia Society for Technology in Education (VSTE).

All Virginia public school division educators are invited to register for the webinars and workshops. Registration is required.

Recordings of the sessions will be available in the Virtual Virginia Professional Learning Network (PLN), visible from your Canvas Dashboard. If the PLN is not visible on your Dashboard, you may self-enroll in the PLN via VVA Professional Learning.

Canvas trainers will present this eight-part series of live, hands-on workshops that dive into the essential components of the Canvas LMS and the blended education experience. The workshops are intended for educators who are new to the Canvas LMS.
