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.

Workshops

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.

Becoming Texas Educator Webinar Series

Educators, join us for a FREE professional development webinar. Connect with us virtually for a three-part summer webinar series to explore the Museum's recently renovated first floor history gallery, Becoming Texas, which highlights the pre-1821 history of Texas with the most contemporary research of our past.

Each webinar in this series dives into a focused topic of early Texas history. Educators will participate in a live Q and A with a Museum Curator and Educator about how to explore this content area with students, both in the Museum and in the classroom. These Zoom webinars are free to attend, with advanced registration required. Registered educators will receive access to the event, resources related to the topic, and CPE certificates (SBEC approved). This webinar series is open to classroom teachers, preservice teachers, higher education professionals, informal educators, and homeschool educators. Visit the events below for more info and registration.

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 Education@TheStoryofTexas.com so we can prepare your certificate.
