Keeping Learning Alive! Conference
Saturday, April 13, 2013 from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM (EDT)
The first annual Keeping Learning Alive! conference will offer free professional development to teachers, pre-service candidates, GWU faculty, and GWU alumni relating to the North Carolina Professional Teaching Standards. A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided free of charge to participants. This one day professional development is sponsored by the School of Education and the Center for Innovative Leadership Development.
The professional development will include a dynamic presentation from the Western North Carolina Director of People to People Programs. People to People provides teachers with opportunities to work with students from around the globe along with possibilities for travel.
Participants will then have their choice of breakout sessions ranging from technology integration to practical implication of action research for the classroom teacher. After lunch, participants will explore the true meaning of professional learning communities (PLC's) and then move into sessions of their own choice to launch a virtual PLC. By involvement in the virtual PLC, participants will further delve into learning about topics of interest for today's teachers.
Upon successful completion of the professional development, .5 CEU's will be offered to participants. Participants have the ability to earn an additional .5 CEU's by participating in a virtual PLC.
Make plans now to join us for this exciting opportunity to collaborate with colleagues. Registration is free and is limited to the first 100 applications. Please bring your ticket for admission.
