All three of the SRSN Innovation Zones come together the second Wednesday of each month to engage in using a personalized competency-based mindset to support learning design.

Participants engage with national and state experts, and share insights about their own practices. Many of the videos and resources provided are excellent tools for building and district leaders striving to create quality professional learning experiences.
