We are currently accepting applications for NIPEN 8.0!!

NIPEN is a two-part, virtual workshop that spans multiple days. NIPEN 8.0 will be a small-group cohort of educators who are seeking to deepen their understanding of Progressive Education and intensely refine their progressive practice. If admitted to the cohort, you can expect to grow immensely in your practice as a Progressive educator and create a tight-knit learning community with your fellow participants that will endure for years to come.
