MSON Annual Workshop

Since 2013, the Malone Schools Online Network has gathered independent school teachers from across the country to build online courses that honor their own craft as educators. These real-time classes value meaningful relationships, classroom community, and academic rigor.

Since the onset of COVID-19, MSON has helped schools across the globe transition to online learning, emphasizing the role of the real-time classes for connection and community. Now, many of our schools have an opportunity to engage in thoughtful planning for a school year that will likely involve online learning.

For the first time, the MSON Annual Workshop is open to all educators.

See here for information on this experience.
