Open Programs

Learning and professional development opportunities open to all educators in the San Diego region

About CRLP at UCSD Open Programs

Different than our Signature Programs, the CRLP at UC San Diego offers a variety of learning opportunities throughout the year that are open to all.

Open Programs are available to all educators, regardless of location, school site, or district. They are one-day or half-day workshops, such as our sessions dedicated to unpacking the California Spanish Language Development standards or the California Dyslexia Guidelines, that are offered one-to-two times a year. These “one-off” opportunities are an excellent way to become acquainted with the Reading and Literature Project’s teacher-led approach to professional learning. Open Programs are also more accessible to educators due to their reduced cost and time commitment.
