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. 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. Check out what's upcoming below and register today!
Teacher Educator Institute
Teacher Educator Institutes(TEIs) use a “train the trainer” model to prepare professional development providers to teach EiE to classroom educators. Like all EiE workshops, our Teacher Educator Institute is hands-on and learner-driven. You’ll develop a deep understanding of the pedagogy and structure of the EiE curriculum. And you’ll take away a large collection of valuable resources to help you facilitate your own EiE workshops. This upcoming workshop (May 2 - 4 2018) will be held at the Museum of Science, Boston. If you register before April 17th, you'll receive a $50 discount.
Fostering Engineering Habits of Mind in Students
At EiE, we believe that a well-designed engineering curriculum develops "engineering habits of mind," or positive strategies for problem solving, that help define success not only in engineering but also across the curriculum. In this one-hour session, you'll build an understanding of how fostering these engineering habits can support student critical thinking and problem solving, and you'll explore how you can continue to support students in applying these ways of thinking. Register now for our free session on April 25th at 4:00 - 5:00 PM EDT!
