Learning Groups

In response to state feedback, DaSy and our partners have developed a variety of small-group learning communities. These communities include Communities of Practice, workshops, and ongoing learning communities. Each focuses on a topic of mutual interest to a small group of states. The table below contains the full list of learning groups that DaSy helps to facilitate.

New learning groups for 2018 are shown in our 2018 State Learning Opportunities flyer, and include start and end dates.
