UW-P faculty, staff invited to Chiwaukee Academy
The University of Wisconsin-Parkside welcomes educators to the 15th annual Chiwaukee Academy Aug. 13 to 17. Held in collaboration with Carthage College and the Kenosha and Racine Unified School Districts, this week of professional development offers K-12 teachers standards-based instruction in computers and technology, science, math, professional development, and reading/language arts.
UW-Parkside faculty and staff are invited to join the Institute of Professional Educator Development (IPED) for the keynote address by Dr. Lodge McCammon Monday, Aug. 13, at 8:30 a.m. in the Student Center Cinema. McCammon, a curriculum and contemporary media specialist from the Friday Institute at North Carolina State University, discusses how "flipped learning" works in a public school classroom. His "FIZZ" program encourages educators to eliminate classroom lectures. Instead, this innovative new approach replaces the traditional lecture with collaborative and engaging student learning activities.
There is no fee for our faculty and staff to attend the keynote. However, due to limited seating, you are asked to register in advance.
UW-Parkside faculty and staff are also invited to register for the new Leadership and Social Justice Institute. This week-long program provides an in-depth focus on equity and ICS, with more face-to face-dialogue, more time for analysis and goal setting, full immersion in equity work, development and networking with an ICS community, and an affirmation of your commitment to equity and integration.
The sessions are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 to 11:30 a.m. Friday. The fee for this special session is $135. IPED will pay the fee for the first five UW-Parkside faculty or staff interested in attending. More information on the Leadership and Social Justice Institute is available on the university web site. More information on Chiwaukee Academy is also available on the web site.To reserve your place at the keynote address or to register for the Leadership and Social Justice Institute, email Marisella Malacara-Wood at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 262-595-2753.
