Professional Development Workshop for Physics Teachers

27 Jun
The educational research and development team at Tufts Center for Engineering Education and Outreach (CEEO) is currently designing, developing and testing an innovative web-based learning environment called InterLACE (Interactive Learning and Collaboration Environment) to support high school students in carrying out collaborative inquiry-based physics lessons. The InterLACE team will be hosting a free Professional Development workshop August 13th – 17th from 9AM-3PM for interested Physics teachers. There are 20 spots available, applications will reviewed and accepted on a rolling basis.
Teacher Professional Development

The workshop will focus on both the InterLACE tools and the pedagogical aspects related to inquiry-based learning.  During the professional development workshop, teachers will:   

  • Explore collaborative and inquiry-based pedagogy
  • Participate in hands-on activities incorporating the InterLACE software tool-kit
  • Develop lesson plans and activities for 2012-2013 school year
  • Complete additional nightly assignments (1 to 2 hours) outside of workshop hours in order to receive full 40 PDPs
  • Receive lunch each day

To apply for this workshop, please fill out this electronic form: www.ceeo.tufts.edu/interlace

If you are interested in being part of the InterLACE project but cannot attend the workshop this summer, please still fill out the electronic form.

Application deadline is Friday, July 20th.
