Regional workshops are designed to help members become more effective teachers, by providing practical knowledge in key areas. During these full-day interactive institutes at convenient locations across the country, participants take part in small and large group activities that help them learn about topics affecting the world of education today.
Who should attend?
All educators are welcome, but active KDP members--undergraduate, graduate, and professionals (especially new teachers)--should attend a regional workshop! Locations for workshops are selected based on the convenience and centrality of their location. The workshops are an opportunity for KDP members to meet face-to-face with one another and make professional connections throughout the area. It is not only an occasion for professional development, but also a wonderful chance for students within chapters to meet future colleagues and like-minded peers.
This curriculum is designed to help pre-service and new teachers (in their first 3 years) develop the skills necessary to become strong teacher leaders. Activities include a self-assessment, using social media, develop networking and practical skills, as well as learning how to implement these into the classroom.
