Professional Development

Programs, events, and workshops for educators of all grade levels and subjects

Educator Workshops

Explore Museum exhibitions and discover new teaching resources to take back to the classroom.

The Bullock Museum hosts professional development experiences in a variety of formats throughout the year. Evenings for Educators offer a chance for teachers to explore the Museum exhibitions in an informal environment, meet community organizations, gather classroom resources, and enjoy time with colleagues. More structured Educator Workshops allow teachers to take a deep dive into artifacts, primary sources, background knowledge, and teaching strategies on specific topics. All programs provide CPE credit, TEA approved.

We also offer the opportunity for groups of teachers to schedule workshops based on needs and interests with the Bullock Museum.

CPE Credit for Select Museum Public Programs

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 educator workshops exclusively for teachers, educators can gain content knowledge from attending these events and can receive CPE credit.

To receive CPE credit after attending these eligible public programs, email to receive your certificate.
