Best Practices (BP) Teacher Workshop

This contemporary workshops is the centerpiece of the new Teacher Certification Program. It implements the Best Practices recommended and validated by over 400 teachers in the recent survey, training teachers how, rather than what, to teach.

The Workshop is built around simulations to engage participants in analyzing and practicing as well as giving and receiving feedback while delivering bridge lessons. Participants may opt to demonstrate their Best Practice proficiency to earn certification as an ACBL Best Practices Teacher.

The Workshop is three half-days.
