Education Minnesota is proud to announce the launch of our new online learning platform, LearnUpon.

Using LearnUpon, members can access our full catalog of professional development to improve their professional practice and earn CEU credits for relicensure as well as build union understanding and power.

The majority of courses will be pre-recorded. Some will be offered live via webinar and some will be a combination of both.

The best part? These courses are FREE to active Education Minnesota members.

How to sign up

On July 1, we sent an email to all members inviting you to access the LearnUpon platform.

No account creation is required. That's all been done already on the back end of the platform. Please contact us at learnupon@edmn.org if you do not receive an email invitation. (Remember to check your junk/spam folders!)

Here's a video explaining how to access the platform for the first time:

More information

LearnUpon is a straightforward, easy-to-navigate platform, and we think you will love it!

That said, there will be a learning curve, as distance learning for professional development is new for many of us. Please reach out to the LearnUpon team if you have any questions as you explore this new medium for high-quality professional development, brought to you by your union's Minnesota Educator Academy!
