I just recently learned about free PD to be held at Wright State university over the summer.
Workshops include options such as:
- Connecting a School Garden to Content Standards
- Book in a Day
- Safe Space Ally Development Training
- Proactive Circle Conversations to Promote Social and Academic Development
- Mental Health in the Schools
- Developmentally Appropriate child Guidance: Addressing Disruptive Behavior in the Early Childhood Classroom
- Toward a Psychology of Understanding ADHD
- What’s New in Children’s Picture Books in Content Areas?
- Introduction to Co-Teaching
- Teaching Strategies for Promoting Active Participation in the Classroom
- An Introduction to Project Based Learning
I have not attended PD from this partnership institute before, however as an adjunct instructor at WSU, I have had the opportunities of attending presentations from a couple of the featured professors in the workshops listed above. Based on the quality of the content and delivery I experienced before, in addition to the cost, I highly recommend checking out the offerings:
All of the courses will be held at Millett Hall:
Having previously attended and presented at the annual UC STEM Conference, I highly recommend this informative, well-planned event.
The University of Cincinnati (UC) and the Cincinnati STEM Collaborative (GCSC) have a new partnership with Northern Kentucky University – CINSAM (NKU).
Although I have not attended the newly added Industry field trips and kick-off dinner with STEM Initiative Models and Interactive Workshop sessions to be held at NKU, I have had the opportunity to participate in the all day Cincinnati conference.
There are many registration options to select. For a couple years, I was extremely satisfied with the full-day option. $50 includes a garage parking pass (very valuable at UC), breakfast, lunch, up to 4 contact hours, and conference giveaways. One year I even won an amazon gift card during their free giveaways. For a few dollars, the evening option seems well worth the value.
Please review their website. You will be sure to find a number of STEM related workshops at your interest and teaching grade-level.
A $75 non-member fee includes registration for the Pre-K – 12 Professional Development workshops focusing on Engineering. The rate provides you with ASEE membership, a day of PD, curriculum showcase, continental breakfast, and a networking lunch.
