Last Updated by
Join KLRN, KERA, and Basin PBS for our FREE monthly Chat & Learn sessions (second Tuesday of each month) where we explore timely topics, share stories of educators using innovative teaching methods, and discuss how you can bring those ideas into your own classroom through resources from PBS LearningMedia.
Chat & Learn is held from 5:00-6:00 PM/CST on the OVEE (Online Video Engagement Experience) platform. OVEE is a free, online screening platform where you chat live in a “virtual theater” with other teachers. Certificates with 1 hour of CPE credit will be available to all participants after each session.
