|Faculty sought to teach summer K-12 educator workshops|
Do you have a workshop idea for K-12 teachers or administrators? If so, we are looking for you. Each summer, the Continuing Education office of Professional Development for Educators (PDE) sponsors a variety of local workshops for K-12 educators to assist in their professional development requirements and needs. PDE is currently soliciting interest from UND faculty to develop workshops for the summer of 2010.
If you want to share your research, expertise, or have specific interests, content areas, or teaching strategies that you are passionate about and want to share, consider putting together a short-term, 15 instructional hour, site-based workshop to be offered this summer. PDE provides continuing education/professional development credit to educators for these graduate level workshops.
To keep costs down for participants, we encourage you to visit with your department chairs and deans for financial support of your idea. When providing workshops without departmental or grant support, stipends for facilitators can be arranged through facilitation agreements with PDE. Assistance is provided through PDE for classroom scheduling, audio visual equipment arrangements, and handout duplication.
If interested, please contact Kim Jones at 777-4225 for submission forms and guidelines. Tentative syllabi and forms should be submitted by Feb. 1, 2010. Are you thinking about it, but would like some ideas for workshop topics that teachers have identified as areas of interest? Please call Kim and visit about the possibilities.
