Plan now to attend the PASCD Storyboarding Summer Institute with Heidi Hayes Jacobs and Allison Zmuda

PASCD is pleased to announce our collaboration with Heidi Hayes Jacobs and Allison Zmuda on their most recent publication, "Streamlining the Curriculum: Using the Storyboard Approach to Frame Compelling Learning Journeys."

To provide you with a hands-on learning experience, Heidi Hayes Jacobs and Allison Zmuda will be facilitating a 3-day institute in Allentown on June 12 -- 14, 2024 where you and your team can learn how to transform your curriculum into a connected narrative that incorporates student-accessible language and imagery. The authors will be providing one-on-one coaching guidance to participants.

If you're interested in learning about the storyboard approach and whether or not it's right for your organization, our new MicroLearning Series: Streamlining the Curriculum can help. The series includes three one-hour micro-courses that can unlock three essential skills and energize your streamlining and storyboarding journey:

  • Micro-Course #1 -- Make the Case
  • Micro-Course #2 -- Streamline the Content
  • Micro-Course #3 -- Storyboard the Experience (available March 1st)

Discover the limitless potential of our professional learning opportunities designed to enhance your skills in storyboarding. Find out more about our storyboarding programs below.
