November Professional Development Opportunities

There are some great opportunities right around the corner in November—there is something for everyone so I hope you find the professional development opportunity that is right for you.


  1. AP Human Geography workshop-November 4th at Rhode Island College.  I’m extra excited about this one since all participants will receive APHG test prep materials, atlases, supplemental reading materials and a thumb drive loaded with materials.  Please come prepared to share.
  2. GIS Educator’s Day-November 5th in Newport.  I’ve made a deal for RIGEA members to have their conference registration for this event paid for by the alliance (normally $100).  This meeting travels around the northeast and we are incredibly fortunate to have it in Rhode Island this year.  To get you registration fees waived, please email Lyn Malone at
  3. Looking at Geography–November 18th, 8:30am-1:30pm Bridgewater State University.  Hosted by SEMAGNET, see more details here.



November APHG Workshop

At our last GeoFest, it was suggested we have an APHG-specific Saturday morning conference/sharing/networking get together.  Nov 4th, at 9am-12pm, we’ll hold that event at Rhode Island College’s Gaige Hall room 200. We’ll have breakfast (coffee, egg muffins, fruit OJ) at 9am and lunch after 12pm (pizza, cookies, and chips) available.  Connecticut and Massachusetts APHG teachers are also invited to join us.  Please RSVP here:
