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.

Programming Update - August 31, 2022

We have began to once again offer in-person training/professional development workshops for our signature programs. We will continue to offer current and potential partners the option of having our signature professional development/specialty workshop sessions via virtual/online learning platforms, throughout the remainder of 2022.


CRLP Open Program Highlights

  • Professional development programs geared at teachers in San Diego county
  • Open to anyone from any SD region school
  • More affordable than signature programs
  • Most programs are "one-off" programs - happen one time, or might repeat annually
