If you're looking to improve your teaching practice this spring, it's the perfect time to check out what EiE PD has to offer. In February, join us for two free webinars: Fostering Engineering Habits of Mind in Students and Meaningful Integration of STEM in Elementary Classrooms. Or be one of the first to experience our brand new, three-part online professional development series, Intro to Engineering for Elementary Educators. And for an in-person experience, join us in Boston on March 8–9 for the hands-on, introductory Everyone Engineers workshop. Read on to learn more and register today!

What Do You Learn at a Teacher Educator Institute?

Build your knowledge.

One of EiE’s crowning achievements is our Professional Development (PD) program. Elementary educators who come into our workshops knowing almost nothing about engineering leave feeling like EiE experts. But as much as our PD staff would love to show every single teacher the best practices to implement EiE, they can’t be everywhere at once. So when a district or school needs to prepare many teachers to implement EiE and provide the long-term support they know their teachers need, they send their professional development providers to one of our Teacher Educator Institutes.

Thinking About Attending a Teacher Educator Institute?

Build your knowledge.

One of EiE’s crowning achievements is our Professional Development (PD) program. Elementary educators who come into our workshops knowing almost nothing about engineering leave feeling like EiE experts.

At these workshops, PD Providers and teacher leaders learn more about EiE, improve their teaching practice, and have a total blast working with the EiE team! We will be hosting a 3-day Teacher Educator Institute at the Museum of Science, Boston on October 18th–20th, 2017.

You're Invited: Learn Effective Questioning Strategies for the Engineering Classroom

So you’re teaching engineering to your elementary students. And today they’re designing a technology—perhaps a solar oven or a water filter. One group comes up with an unusually

creative design . . . but it doesn’t quite work as expected. Now what?

For maximum learning impact, you want to be ready with prompts that help your students do their own problem solving. In other words, you need effective questioning strategies! You can learn more about these strategies when you attend an interactive online learning session from Engineering is Elementary, scheduled for April 26, 2017.

New Online PD Scholarship Opportunity

We’ve been very excited to roll out our new online professional development offerings over the past few months—we’ve conducted webinars about habits of mind and engineering in out-of-school time and we’ve had some amazing discussions with educators around the country about STEM integration and ELA connections. Now, we’re ready to take online PD to the next level with the very first online workshop series this summer. We’re looking for a small group of highly motivated teachers to help us pilot test this new experience. If you are selected, you’ll receive a scholarship that includes:

  • three online professional development sessions
  • an EiE teacher guide of your choice
  • the EiE materials kit for the unit
  • a classroom set of 24 storybooks for the unit
  • a $150 stipend for your feedback about the experience
