UW-Green Bay Education Outreach will present an array of new and returning favorite classes beginning in June as part of its Summer 2013 Offerings for Educators lineup.
The courses run throughout the summer, offering a wide variety of face-to-face, blended and online learning formats with various credit and noncredit enrollment options. Courses will continue to be added as school district requests dictate, so interested educators are encouraged to visit the Education Outreach website (www.uwgb.edu/educationoutreach) for the most current class information.
The research-based Offerings for Educators courses provide teachers, administrators and other professionals the practical education they need to apply theory and best practice to the classroom and school environment. Returning favorites for summer include “Communicating and Collaborating with Google Tools,” a highly popular course offering four different enrollment options to best suit the needs of any local educator. Education Outreach also will offer the returning “Integrating iPads into the Curriculum,” a high-interest course that helps educators effectively integrate use of the iPad to support instruction on both a conceptual and practical level.
The Summer 2013 Offerings for Educators also feature several new course options, including “Introduction to the Next Generation Science Standards for K-8 Teachers,” offered in partnership with The Einstein Project and taught by UW-Green Bay Associate Professor of Education Scott Ashmann. Educators also can take the new course, “What Makes You an Effective Teacher?” which will help educators articulate and demonstrate what they know and employ the educational practices that foster students’ intellectual, social and emotional growth.
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.
