UW-Green Bay presents wide array of winter, spring Offerings for Educators

UW-Green Bay Education Outreach is presenting a full lineup of new and returning winter and spring Offerings for Educators, a variety of online and in-person courses designed to help teachers, administrators and other professionals obtain the practical education they need to apply theory and best practice to the classroom and school environment.

Interested educators are encouraged to consider such courses as “Children and Poverty,” an offering that examines the issues of childhood poverty, homelessness and the effects thereof on the brain and learning. Educators will explore strategies for teaching students to be in charge of their own education and learn to develop a plan for addressing issues of poverty in their particular educational setting.

Educators also can choose from a variety of courses that focus on the all-important issue of technology, keeping current on the latest trends for better learning outcomes, classroom management and more. Offerings include “Using Technology to Enhance Student Writing and Comprehension in the Classroom,” an online course geared for educators of grades four through 12. Participants will learn to enhance their classroom assignments by integrating the latest web 2.0 writing tools and providing instruction that fosters 21st century skills in their students. Other technology-related courses include “Using the iPad to Support Teaching, Learning and Management,” and “Using the SMART Board to Support Critical Thinking K-12.”

Detailed course information, including syllabi and cost and registration details, is available online at www.uwgb.edu/educationoutreach. UW-Green Bay courses for educators align with Wisconsin standards for teacher and administrator development and licensure.
