Summer vacation provides a time for educators to learn something new for their classrooms this fall.
Ten Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College instructors from the New Richmond campus did just that as they attended the recent “Facilitating the Future” workshop at Spooner High School in June and July.
Joe Krear, Virginia Johansen, Scott Horsman, Christine Matt, Karen Howell, Kelley Kepler, Larry Gee, Vicki Harmon, Sarah Noreen and Mary Williams-Greene participated with 145 other regional teachers, counselors and principals.
The workshop is sponsored by CESA #11, CESA #12 and WITC.
There were nine learning communities focusing on a variety of themes:
* Building Bridges between Schools and Local Business,
* Economics Education for Today’s World,
* Food Science,
* Fundamentals of SolidWorks,
* Wisconsin Comprehensive School Counseling Model,
* OnCourse (student study skills),
* Learning Pathways,
* Teaching and Learning on The Cloud, and
* Technology Adventures.
The learning communities are taught by regional teachers from the K-12 system and from Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College. See photos and learn more at www.facil itatingthefuture.org.
