Boniuk Institute Educator Professional Development

About Educator Professional Development
Each spring, the Boniuk Institute presents its online Educator Professional Development for secondary social studies educators.

Participants receive training in basic religious literacy and TEKS-aligned resources, which creates awareness and enables them to more confidently include and address the role of religion in their classroom subject matter. Participating educators received continuing education credits at the completion of this series.
