MA Early College Community of Practice

in partnership with

2021 Virtual Fall Event:
A Series of EC Theme-based Workshops
Tuesday, October 12

Thank you for joining us for the ECP series of theme-based workshops.
PowerPoint presentations have been posted and are linked below each session.

Please note, that this year’s Early College Fall Convening was changed to a series of workshops from which you can pick and choose those most relevant to you.  The pivot to  workshops was to provide a more informal space for information sharing, questions, problem solving, and peer to peer conversations.
