Our Workshop Offerings

Instructional Best Practices

Educational initiatives and trends are dynamic over time. Continuous learning for Educators is essential to stay abreast of current educational trends. Throughout this category, workshops will highlight instruction that deepens student understanding and promotes metacognition through thoughtful and impactful classroom practices.

Content Design and Implementation

Workshops in this category are focused on promoting strong student outcomes through high-quality instruction and student-centered activities. By learning to shift the ownership of learning from a teacher-led classroom to inquiry-based, requires robust planning and profound content knowledge.

Student Supports

Instructional best practices are designed to meet the needs of all students. The differentiation strategies explored in this category support student-centered instruction so all students can meet high-expectations and rigorous course standards.

Virtual Pedagogy in Practice

Delivering content through the use of an interactive whiteboard requires specialized instructional strategies. This category explores the required digital competency and foundational pedagogy to promote individualized student-centered learning one-on-one and methods for implementing collaborative group work in small group settings.

English Language Learners

As students progress through the five stages of language acquisition, it is important to provide scaffolded instruction to help learners build fluency and confidence. Workshops in this category are designed to assist Educators in developing best practices for scaffolding instruction while students move through the learning continuum.

Instructional Technology Shorts

New instructional technologies are developed and released to enhance Educator instruction and support student learning every day. Each month will highlight the educational benefits and features of a digital educational resource designed to enhance Educational practices. *These shorts do not count towards Continuing Education Credits.
