Social-emotional learning, educational escape rooms, math content made easy and bringing nature into the classroom are among the topics at the annual Network for Education Renewal Conference at Wright State University (WSUNER).
The Learn Local WSUNER Conference for local educators, administrators, organizations and the Wright State community will be held Saturday, March 9, from 8:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. in The Hangar in Allyn Hall.
“This unique professional-development opportunity offers opportunities for networking and provides interactive sessions on a wide variety of topics that will offer ideas on how to improve your effectiveness and productivity,” said Amy Elston, instructor and assistant director of the Office of Partnerships and Field Experiences in the College of Education and Human Services.
The College of Education and Human Services is part of the National Network for Education Renewal and offers the conference — along with presenting partners Dayton Power and Light Co. and Vectren Energy Delivery of Ohio — to emphasize the value of education and appreciation for educators. The college has nine P–12 partner districts that encourage participation and continue to provide many presenters and attendees for the event. In the past, the conference has attracted nearly 300 professionals from over 20 school districts.
College course credit is available to attendees, presenters, partner school districts and non-partner school districts for attending or teaching within the conference.
