RAFT's workshop program is designed to enrich educational programs by facilitating the practice of hands-on teaching across the curriculum.

RAFT's material-based, hands-on workshops are unique in that each workshop attendee receives RAFT materials to support implementation of the activities shared in the class.

Enrollment Policy

Waitlist Policy

Due to the popularity of RAFT workshops, we do maintain waitlists. There is no charge to be placed on a waitlist, and there is no obligation to attend the class should a spot become available. Should a spot open up in a class, RAFT will contact waitlist registrants in order of registration to offer the opportunity to enroll at that point. RAFT requests that waitlist registrants do not make plans to attend a class unless they have been contacted; seats are only made available if we have received a cancellation from a registered participant.

Earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

All RAFT workshops offer you the opportunity to earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs) from San Jose State University.

Participants can purchase one CEU from SJSU for every 10 hours of RAFT workshop instruction completed within a semester.

The cost is $60 for each CEU.

Simply request a SJSU registration form from RAFT and submit to SJSU both the form and your check payable to SJSU. RAFT submits a roster of names each semester to SJSU of participants taking 10 or more hours of classes. Partial units are not available; hours from previous terms are not applicable.
