BestPrep is proud to announce a partnership with the University of St. Thomas Opus College of Business, which includes hosting the Technology Integration Workshop (TIW) on it is Minneapolis campus July 29-August 1. The TIW is a four-day professional development workshop where Minnesota educators learn how to incorporate existing and emerging technologies into their classroom teachings.

The TIW offers more than 30 hands-on breakout sessions and keynotes, while providing time to apply the information they’ve learned to update a unit plan to be used in the coming school year. Topics include Breakout EDU, coding, virtual and augmented reality, formative assessments, and more. In addition, the workshop provides an opportunity for participants to experience a job shadow with a person in the business community, to learn about real-world skills their students need in their futures.

“The Technology Integration Workshop aligns well with Opus College of Business’ Emerging Technology initiative, which ensures that students have exposure to technology that will prepare them for the world of work,” stated Dean of the Opus College of Business, Stefanie Lenway.

The mission of both BestPrep and the University of St. Thomas is centered on developing Minnesota students into successful business people and preparing them for their future careers. Both organizations play a role in preparing young people for the workforce, and the TIW is one piece of that.

 “We are thrilled to create such a wonderful partnership with the University of St. Thomas and the Opus College of Business,” shared BestPrep’s President and CEO, Bob Kaitz. “Our educators really enjoy being on this world class campus, where they learn new skills and gain perspective on the business world.
