Teacher conference takes innovative approach
Educators are invited to attend edcamp Northern Illinois, a day of free professional development that offers opportunities to share new classroom techniques, discuss teaching innovations and make connections with like-minded professionals. This innovation in professional development will be held on April 20 at Kaneland Harter Middle School in Sugar Grove. The event is open to K-12 teachers and administrators, university faculty, and Northern Illinois University teacher candidates.
NIU is recruiting local experts to share innovative ideas that are being put into practice across the region. NIU planners of edcamp Northern Illinois include the Center for P-20 Engagement, External and Global Programs Office in the College of Education, Partnership Office in the College of Education, and the Professional Development Schools Office in the NIU University Office of Teacher Certification.
“K-12 teachers and university faculty usually attend separate conferences, and teacher candidates do not often participate in professional conferences of this type," said Dr. Tris Ottolino, Professional Development Schools coordinator. "I am delighted that several of our co-teaching pairs, classroom teachers and candidates who work together throughout the school year, have volunteered to lead sessions on PDS issues, successes and challenges.”
