Professional Development Opportunities
For more than 25 years, CIESE has collaborated with teachers, administrators, schools and school districts in STEM professional development programs that emphasize high quality, standards-based, technology-integrated curriculum materials and administrative counsel. CIESE offers a wide array of workshops that explore innovative, instructional strategies, and technologies that enhance student achievement in STEM and other core subjects. Teachers learn by using inquiry-based curricula, hands-on learning activities, innovative curriculum materials and cutting-edge technologies.
CIESE instructors possess both deep content expertise in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, and K-12 classroom experience. Many have worked as field scientists and practicing engineers before becoming elementary, middle, or high school classroom teachers. All have led intensive professional development programs, provided on-site classroom coaching, developed curricula, and managed international online projects.
In-district training is available for any of CIESE's Professional Development Offerings. The workshops listed are for up to 20 teachers at your location. Workshops can be grade level and/or subject-area specific, and can be customized to district priorities, curricula, timelines, and budgets. Workshops correlate to the NJ curriculum standards.
