Professional Development Overview
The Science Education and Public Outreach Forums (SEPOFs) provide resources and opportunities to enable sharing of best practices relevant to SMD E/PO. Below is a listing of several opportunities that have been made available for SMD E/PO community members to participate in discussion and professional learning with one another. Several of the opportunities were event based and when possible videos of the sessions were archived. Other opportunities were asynchronous or activities that could be completed when time allowed.
