Members of the Geographic Education Study Group reviewed the experience of the Certificate Program and decided to discontinue offering the workshops for the time being.  As previously noted in July 2013, the teaching and learning workshops were well received but only a few participants were able to follow through with post-workshop assignments. It also has been a challenge to organize and offer the full range of workshops intended. 

The professional development of geography educators remains a important interest of the Study Group.  We hope that through the successes of the St. John's Declaration it will once again be possible to offer professional development support.
