VOE PD Wit & Wisdom, Geodes

Wit & Wisdom® and Geodes®
Virtual Open Enrollment PD

Virtual Open Enrollment Professional Development consists of live online, facilitator-led sessions that are inspired by the same learning design and goals as our in-person sessions and are similarly tailored to your teachers' needs.

The Wit & Wisdom® and Geodes® teams have crafted a multi-year sequence to support educators. Sessions are designed and led by our team of teacher-writers and experts, who draw on their experience in the classroom to help participants prepare for and sustain successful implementation.
