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.
