About the Workshop Series:

More than just digital worksheets, HyperDocs can take students through the entire learning cycle, allow for differentiation, and free up teachers to work in small groups or one-on-one with students in their moments of need.  

Join Lauren Boucher for a series of six collaborative, hands-on workshops that will take you through the HyperDocs creation process and introduce you to tools and strategies that will help you create a powerhouse for learning.  

Participants will receive exclusive access to Lauren’s HyperDocs website which is chock-full of resources, samples, and done-for-you templates, as well as the opportunity to make-and-take a variety of HyperDocs that will “hook” your students and actively engage them in the learning process. 

NOTE: While we recommend that you attend all sessions of the workshop series to meet the learning objectives, each workshop can be attended as a standalone. Full members will also have access to view the recordings on-demand and earn up to three Certificates of Completion.

By the end of this workshop series, you will be able to: 

  • Explain what HyperDocs are and what they are not, including the value that they can add to the classroom.  

  • Discover where to find pre-made HyperDocs and how to edit HyperDocs templates. 

  • Incorporate hooks into HyperDocs that will spark students’ interest and engagement in new learning. 

  • Provide opportunities for student choice when creating HyperDocs to engage students in learning through their own exploration. 

  • Integrate digital tools and activities with HyperDocs to create engaging learning experiences that empower students to apply what they have learned. 

  • Integrate digital tools and activities with HyperDocs to amplify student's voices and allow them to share their learning with authentic audiences. 

  • Provide space for student self-reflection when creating HyperDocs to engage students in taking ownership of their own learning.

Anyone! If you find a workshop that appeals to you, you are welcome to join us.

Live workshops are 60-minutes in duration. Attendees will have access to the ‘workroom' following the workshop so they can continue collaborating with peers. Additionally, the trainer is available for 24 hours following the workshop to help coach.

While it's recommended you attend every workshop of a series to make sure you are achieving all learning outcomes, each workshop can be viewed as a stand-alone.

  • Workshops will be available on-demand in the Teacher Learning Community for UpTeach members, typically within 3-5 days after the workshop has ended. NOTE: Non-members will need to pay to access the on-demand workshop.
  • UpTeach members will also have access to the associated classroom to view the participant discussion stream and access any resources supplied. NOTE: Access to the trainer is only available during the actual workshop.

We host at least one virtual workshop per week throughout the year, with the exception of holiday weeks. Times for workshops vary due to many of our trainers being educators and school consultants themselves. This means that typically workshops are held after school hours ET.

We are excited to say that workshops are now included with Premium (UpTeach®) member subscriptions and district memberships.

  1. Internet access.
  2. Access to GoToWebinar. Whether you use the download app or an internet browser, trainers present direct instruction and communicate throughout the training via GoToWebinar.
  3. Access to Google Classrooms. Please make sure you are in a setting where you will have access to Google Classrooms. NOTE: Some school firewalls will not allow you to access Google Classrooms from your classroom. In these cases, you may need to be in your home to participate. Additionally, if your school email address is already associated with Google Classrooms, you will need to use a different personal email address to join so that you are not locked out of the training. Again, due to school privacy restrictions on some school email addresses.

Yes! If you have access to dual monitors, this is ideal. With this type of setup, you will be able to keep GoToWebinar open on one screen, and Google Classrooms open on another.

If you do not have access to a dual monitor setup, no worries! You will just need to make sure you can ‘toggle/switch' between the two.
