Online and Blended Professional Learning Options

Connect virtually with this blended professional learning model consisting of live workshops, independent practices, and live coaching support. Participants will receive valuable activities and/or lesson plans to help implement STEM education in their instruction.

Each workshop can accommodate up to 30 educators and includes instruction in the use of a digital application to enhance engagement and productivity.

Thirty-minute post-workshop coaching sessions for up to 15 educators provide valuable feedback on lesson planning that implements STEM education.

All six workshops can be purchased as a package for $5,000. Act 48 credit is available.

For more information, call Jeremy Bassett, Teaching Excellence Academy Manager, at 412.237.1634 or email bassettj@CarnegieScienceCenter.org.


Prerequisites:

Our “What is STEM?” and “The Next Step in STEM" workshops are designed to establish a strong foundation for STEM professional learning. Because of this, these two workshops are prerequisites for other Online Professional Learning Options.

What is STEM?

Two-hour live virtual format | Cost: $1,000 (prerequisite for The Next Step in STEM workshop)

Digital application utilized for the evaluation of school/district’s current STEM program

STEM best practices can be woven into any classroom or lesson plan. In this first workshop, we’ll discuss factors that make for a collaborative STEM learning environment, as well as resource materials that incorporate STEM into multiple subject areas. Develop STEM buy-in with fellow stakeholders using our proven strategies.

The Next Step in STEM

Two-hour live virtual format | Cost: $1,000 (prerequisite for all other online workshops)

Digital application utilized for brainstorming and creating STEM education improvement goals and implementation plan

Participate in an action-oriented workshop that will have you collaboratively planning for the implementation of your STEM education program. Learn about employing strategic methods such as creative matrices and directed brainstorming. Through guided group discussion and visualization, set your school on a successful track with the Carnegie STEM Excellence Pathway.


Additional Options:

Take a deeper dive into the four Pillars of STEM Education: project-based group learning, inquiry-based education, integrated curriculum, and career awareness.

Project-Based Learning

One-hour live virtual format with two follow-up coaching sessions | Cost: $750

Digital application utilized for creating and maintaining electronic portfolios with students

Regardless of your content area, project-based learning (PBL) is sure to inspire and excite your students about STEM. Use your expertise to develop STEM projects that address real-world problems and require students to be engaged. Project resources, group work strategies, and collaborative opportunities are also included.

Inquiry-Based Education

One-hour live virtual format with two follow-up coaching sessions | Cost: $750

Digital application utilized for creating concept/mind maps to illuminate thinking learning

Transitioning a traditional classroom to one that is more question-centered does not require a total curriculum rewrite. Learn simple classroom strategies to turn existing lessons and activities into ones driven by student curiosity that give kids the opportunity to practice and develop their STEM skills.

Integrating STEM into Your Classroom

One-hour live virtual format with two follow-up coaching sessions | Cost: $750

Digital application utilized for online collaboration for creating integrated lessons and activities

Traditionally, the concept of “siloing,” or teaching subjects independently of one another, has been the standard within K–12 schools. In this workshop, educators will learn the value of curriculum integration and its place within the STEM universe. Participants will be asked to brainstorm potential avenues for subject integration and design integrated lessons that can be used upon leaving the workshop.

Career Awareness Through Tech Exploration

One-hour live virtual format with two follow-up coaching sessions | Cost: $750

Digital application utilized for creating avatars to enhance public speaking skills

Learn how to illuminate career pathways through the use of innovative educational technology. Explore different types of educational technology such as Spheros, littleBits, StikBot Studio, Puzzlets, and Bee-Bots, and bring back activities to your classroom.
