You have an idea, a suggestion or a wish, but you are not able to develop a workshop yourself? Professional learning facilitators are always looking for new ideas for their PDs. In case you have such a suggestion, idea or wish you can leave it here. Your suggestions will be published here and thus trainers as well as teachers can access them. (These suggestions can be subject to modification.) A trainer or contact person will get in touch with you. Perhaps a workshop will be developed by the help of your ideas.
