There’s more to professional development for educators than learning best practices in classroom management, updating skills in curriculum mapping, and taking continuing education credits in order to stay at the top of the teaching profession.
Sometimes, a teacher needs to
- Get out into the world to learn how businesses work.
- Learn CPR, just in case…
- Attend a lecture by a principal in an inner-city school from across the country to learn how he or she raised student achievement scores.
The BCIU offers these types of workshops. Check out the links above to see if there’s an educational offering of interest to you.
