EiE Professional Development is excited to offer two free webinars this month that can help you improve your teaching practice. Both "Effective Questioning Strategies for Your STEM Classroom" and "Getting Started with EiE: Materials Management" are suitable for elementary teachers of engineering and STEM specialists, as well as professional development providers and administrators who want to learn more about meaningful integration of STEM subjects and effective questioning strategies. You don’t need previous experience teaching the EiE curriculum to benefit from these engaging webinars. Learn more about the webinars below and register today!
Effective Questioning Strategies
In "Effective Questioning Strategies for Your STEM Classroom," you will view clips from the EiE video library that will give you a window into a real elementary classroom where a teacher is using effective questioning strategies. You'll learn how effective questioning strategies can help support students during engineering design challenges and encourage them to persevere through failure. You will leave this session equipped with questioning strategies you can use immediately with your students during problem-solving STEM activities. Register today and join us on March 14, 2018 4:00-5:00 pm EDT.
Getting Started with EiE: Materials Management
In this session, you will get a first-hand glance at the free resources available on our website that will help you manage the materials necessary for engaging in hands-on engineering activities. We'll explore considerations for constructing base models and testing stations along with ideas for materials sourcing, storage, and distribution. You will leave this session with confidence to manage materials for a problem-based engineering curriculum. Register now and join us on our March 28th, 2018 4:00-5:00 pm EDT.
