It’s been a while since we all met in person. But, that doesn’t mean our work has stopped. In fact, so many of us have pivoted and learned new ways of building partnerships and serving our communities. This is why we created e-space. A virtual way to share what you’ve learned and things you’ve tried.


Many leaders have shared the desire to dig deeper into learning shared from the Ecosystem to Ecosystem – or E2E – workshops at the SLECoP convenings.

This is our chance to do that!

By sharing what you are learning, in a concise, virtual manner, we can encourage other leaders to watch and implement within their own communities.

Then, we can re-convene and discuss, in smaller virtual groups, our learning from the implementation of new ideas.


We hope to have many courses submitted by mid-June. We can take the summer to learn at our own pace and dive deeper.


Learning Objectives & Outcomes
