Peer Learning Communities


Join other professionals to learn and grow as a leader in a supportive peer community.

Peer Learning Communities (PLCs) are designed to allow participants to dive deeply into various themes and functional areas over the course of the school year. In monthly sessions, participants will convene with one of our expert facilitators to share their experiences and raise problems of practice with peers in order to illuminate potential solutions.

PLCs are held in-person in Washington, DC on a monthly basis from September 2018 to April 2019. They run once a month for approximately 2.5 hours during the business day. If you are interested in signing up for a 2018-2019 PLC, please review what each session offers and then click on the registration icon below. If you have any questions, please reach out to Kerri-Ann Nesbeth at knesbeth@edfuel.org.
