Description of Academic Year Professional Development Evenings

This course for teachers can be taken either as a standalone course or as part of a two-year, coherent, articulated professional development program.

This course will provide for the continuing development and application of ideas about energy instruction and formative assessment. Course activities will include presentations by instructors or special guests; whole-group discussions in which instructors and participants present and reflect on energy content and instructional strategies; and work in small groups.
