  • Making Sense of Three-Dimensional Teaching and Learning Using OpenSciEd K-12 Science Curricular Materials (Onsite Workshop): ISBE and NSTA are offering a one-day, onsite professional learning workshop to support phenomenon-driven, three-dimensional teaching and learning in the classroom. We’ll use OpenSciEd K-12 science curricular materials as the context for learning; the knowledge and strategies gained can be used independent of the instructional materials and grade level you teach. You may choose to attend both the Making Sense of Three-Dimensional Teaching and Learning  web seminar series and this onsite workshop —these professional learning opportunities are complimentary, but independent of each other. Up to 6 Professional Development Credit Hours (PDCH) will be available. This one-day workshop will be offered four times in three different locations. The specific workshop dates and locations are listed below and run from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM Central time: (1) June 7  Grades K-12  Educators  Compeer Financial - 1303 Leslie Dr, Bloomington, IL; (2) June 10  Grades K-12 Educators  Glenbard High School District 87 596 Crescent Blvd, Glen Ellyn, IL; (3) June 18  Grades K-12 Educators  Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, IL; (4) Make sure you are logged in to the  NSTA website  before you register.
