As social distancing is in effect, our plans for APSA professional development have had to change. We are planning your APSA online workshops and will announce these as they become available.

Also, thank you to our members who gave us ideas for workshops that you would like to see from us. We are considering all your suggestions.

In the meantime, we've curated some workshops that may be of interest to you from LinkedIn Learning, edX and Coursera.
