International AP Workshops

College Board provides Advanced Placement (AP) professional learning opportunities for secondary school administrators, teachers, and counselors worldwide. These events are open to current participants of the AP Program, as well as those who may want to learn more about what we do.

AP Workshops and AP Summer Institutes are great opportunities for new and experienced AP teachers to explore the AP course and exam description for their subject, the AP Exam, and the AP Classroom resources that will help teachers plan and focus their instruction. Participants will get ready-to-use strategies and pedagogical tools shared by an experienced educator within the AP community.
