UmbraEDU is created by educators who take education seriously, ourselves not so much. Our unique specialty is in creating engaging educational resources for informal and professional settings, including but not limited to arts festivals, museums, corporate professional development, and published texts.

Educators — college faculty and TAs, K-12 teachers, or academic program leaders — we’re here for you when you feel ready for real, practical support that can be put to use immediately. We are happy to work with emerging or seasoned educators at any stage in your course development. When you sign up for UmbraEDU personalized consulting, we will coach you through the instructional design process to create robust, transformative courses and course material that will bring the world to your classroom and your classroom into the world.

The core of the UmbraEDU philosophy is our commitment to learner-centered, transformational education that may start in the classroom but always goes beyond. We love formal teaching and learning, but we recognize that the “shadow academy” in life is the important learning that happens through memorable experience.
