School of Education Offers Free Professional Development Seminars Aug. 18-19

The Wilkes University School of Education is offering two days of free professional development training for classroom teachers on Aug. 18 and 19. The two, day-long sessions, which will be presented as online webinars on Zoom, are designed to address the unique challenges being faced by educators as they return to real and virtual classrooms in fall 2020. Each day of professional development offerings begins at 8:30 a.m. and includes five one-hour sessions. The program includes a one-hour lunch break and concludes at 3:15 p.m. Teachers may choose to attend the full day or individual sessions. 

No pre-registration is required. Teachers who wish to obtain Act 48 credit for the webinars should contact Renee Sipple at renee.sipple@wilkes.edu. Teachers can find the complete program listing and the Zoom links for each session at https://wilkes.edu/  pdwebinars.

All sessions will be taught by full-time and adjunct faculty who teach in the undergraduate and graduate education programs offered by the School of Education. The sessions will offer practical information that can immediately be implemented in the classroom. The webinars reflect the kind of information that educators find in the graduate education programs offered by the Wilkes University School of Education. Like those programs, the free professional development webinars are being offered in a convenient online format.
