Professional Development Programs

Evenings for Educators

Designed for teachers of all grade levels and subjects, these casual gatherings feature special tours, film screenings, and refreshments. Pick up new curriculum guides, activities, and unique classroom resources while you earn CPE credit and enjoy time with colleagues.


The Bullock Museum often offers professional development with partner organizations. These range from multi-day conferences to single-day content-rich workshops that explore a variety of topics and subjects.

July 16, 2022 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Caregivers and Educators — join us to explore ways to support the mental health of the children in your lives. 

Improving the mental health and emotional well being of children is a high priority for educators, parents, and caregivers alike. The special temporary exhibition Mental Health: Mind Matters explores how mental illness touches all of our lives, and how supporting mental wellness is important for us all. Presented with Austin ISD, this workshop will bring educators and caregivers together to connect with one another on how to shape the mental health of their children.

Public Programs for CPE Credit

The Bullock Museum hosts public programs that explore Texas history through thoughtful dialogue or a hands-on class. Led by experts, these programs further the conversation about the ever-evolving story of Texas. While they are not professional development exclusively for teachers, educators may benefit from attending these events and can receive CPE credit.

Many of these programs are happening online, and will be available on the Bullock Museum YouTube channel.

To receive CPE credit for any of the following events, watch the video on the Bullock Museum YouTube channel or attend one of our Zoom webinars and email so we can prepare your certificate.
