Concordia University’s School of Education Graduate Department is seeking area education professionals to lead workshops as part of its second annual Summer Institute Workshops.

The Summer Institute Workshops, which will take place July 11-22, are one- or two-day workshops led by knowledgeable practitioners, offering the opportunity for teachers to engage with other professionals in vibrant classroom discussion while earning State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECH).

Those who have an interest in leading a workshop can submit their application to present by April 21st. Presenters will be offered a stipend. The amount will vary, depending on length of workshop.

Last year’s Summer Institute Workshop included topics such as, “How to Engage All Students in Learning,” “Technology That Works in the Classroom,” “Teaching Diverse Learners” and “Effective Teaching Strategies for Middle Schoolers.”

“Through the Summer Institute Workshops, CUAA’s Graduate School of Education is able to reach out to the community and serve the specific needs and interests of the area districts,” said Dr. Marilyn Meell, Director of Graduate Education. “We’re looking for dynamic presenters who can help teachers improve their quality of teaching, and will select proposals that offer attendees the most current information with applicable classroom strategy.”
