Professional Development

Thursday Night Workshop Series


The health and safety of our staff, students and visitors is of utmost importance to us. Therefore, we have decided to cancel all Thursday Night Workshops scheduled through the end of the 2019-2020 school year.

It is our hope that we can resume with our offerings in the fall.

Thank you for your understanding.

What's Happening on Thursday Night?

The UCDS Institute offers affordable and engaging professional development for educators throughout the school year. The UCDS Thursday Night workshop series is a weekly opportunity for teachers in the Seattle region to have fun and elevate your professional practice.

The cost to attend each workshop is $40 per participant. This fee includes clock hours. Proceeds from hands-on arts workshops also provide support for the Creative Fusion arts program by paying artist salaries and providing scholarships for students to participate in this unique program.

The full catalogue of courses offers a range of topics for educators who work from early childhood through high school. Most workshops offer hands-on experiences that give participants the chance to learn by doing.
