Augustana Offers Teaching Workshops Through CEEDAR Grant
Augustana University, in partnership with the South Dakota Department of Education, the CEEDAR Center, and Learners Edge, is offering four free online, on-demand workshops on various “Features of Effective Instruction” to support literacy development in inclusive classrooms to K-12 teachers in South Dakota.
Assistant professor of education Dr. Kathleen Cook served as the principal investigator for the CEEDAR grant and associate professor and department chair of education Dr. Laurie Daily served as coordinator of the design and development for the online, on-demand modules.
“The team worked together incredibly well across nine months to create and refine the workshops,” Daily said. “In the end, it became a project that was highlighted nationally by CEEDAR. We are so excited to bring this high quality, free professional development resource to teachers across the state of South Dakota.”
The workshops are available for registration through June 30, 2017. Each workshop is 3.75 hours and is a self-paced opportunity for guided exploration of high leverage practices. Those who complete all four workshops will earn one continuing education unit (CEU).
