ECLPS Information Panel

The EDmarket Certified Learning Place Specialist (ECLPS) program offers a new professional development opportunity for district and industry leaders that is based on the research and science of why space matters. Join us for a conversation between current ECLPS instructors and learners enrolled in the first cohort as they share how the program has given them a stronger understanding of the built environment and its critical role in the success of students and staff. Learn why the ECLPS designation is the best way to demonstrate a commitment to understanding and excelling in the design and planning of learning environments and how members of the first cohort are already putting their learnings into action. Hear how current learners are elevating their careers by becoming true changemakers in their district and why they will never look at learning spaces the same way after being a part of the ECLPS program. Come get your questions answered on how to elevate your career to the next level!
