Lake Erie College hosting professional development workshop for K-8 teachers
On Nov. 1-2, CEF is partnering with Lake Erie College in Painesville, Ohio, to hold an Essential Elements professional development workshop for 31 K-8 educators. Participants in the workshop will gain valuable experience with hands-on, interactive teaching methods. Although Lake Erie College had noticed a previous lack of interest in science-focused professional development courses, all registration slots in CEF's course were filled within the first 24 hours of registration! Generous local sponsors contributed each teacher's $100 continuing education credit fee. This is CEF's first professional development partnership with a college, and we look forward to similar workshops with colleges and universities in the future.
