Wright State’s College of Education and Human Services will host its annual professional development opportunity for local educators, administrators, organizations and the Wright State community.
The Wright State University Network for Education Renewal Conference is Saturday, May 6, from 7:45 a.m. to noon at The Hangar in Allyn Hall.
The conference is free and college credit is available attendees and presenters. The presenting partners are DP&L and Vectren.
“This conference is a great opportunity for networking and learning from peers,” said Amy Elston, assistant director of the Office of Partnerships and Field Experiences in the College of Education and Human Services. “Teachers in the area are doing outstanding work with students and there is a lot to learn from attending and participating in the breakout sessions. Teachers leave with ideas and inspiration for the work they do with students.”
The College of Education and Human Services is part of the National Network for Education Renewal and has offered the conference for four years.
The conference features workshops and roundtable sessions on strategies to improve effectiveness and productivity in the classroom. Session topics will include co-teaching, revitalizing the arts, writing across the curriculum, using project-based learning and engineering design challenges, conducting assessments within project-based learning, creative ways to use 1:1 devices and community resources.
The conference is expected to attract nearly 300 professionals from around 10 school districts.
“Please join us and learn from others making a positive impact in their communities through service and education,” said Elston.
