Deeper Learning Training Center

Last Updated: 7/21/2020 4:17 PM

The Yellow Springs Deeper Learning Training Center provides professional development opportunities to educators from other schools and districts to help them on their path to deeper learning for all students. Inspired by our own journey over the last six years to project-based learning as our primary pedagogy for instruction, our talented staff utilizes their own experiences and depth of knowledge to assist other educators.

Our goal is to share the joy, engagement, and authentic community impact of our experience in Project Based Learning and Deeper Learning with other school districts. Check out our offerings to the right, which include school visits, PBL workshops, and coaching support.
