Teaching Excellence Academy
Professional Development Opportunities for Educators
As schools and districts adapt to remote learning, social distancing, and the "new normal," the Teaching Excellence Academy is here to support the needs of educators during the 2020–2021 school year.
From crash courses in distance learning to virtual teacher workshops on STEM best practices, the Teaching Excellence Academy offers opportunities for educators in all grade levels, with specific workshops and coaching sessions in:
- Tools for Virtual Instruction and Online Engagement
- Early Learner Education
- Digital Fabrication
Workshops can be offered online via live virtual webinars, at your location, or at Carnegie Science Center (some restrictions apply).
Act 48 credit for Pennsylvania educators is provided upon successful completion of each workshop.
