Each of the three web meetings that comprise the series are designed to help SEA teams learn from their peers, hear from subject matter experts, develop next steps to apply what they learn, and provide ample opportunities for small group peer-to-peer discussions. These are not three independent webinars and different information will be shared during each sessions; this Learning Series is a cumulative learning community.
