The Technology Integration Workshop (TIW) is a unique summer professional development opportunity for educators of all grade levels and subject areas. TIW offers a job shadow at a leading Twin Cities business in addition to holding more than 30 breakout sessions featuring new and emerging technologies while providing time to apply the information by updating a unit plan. During this four-day workshop, educators learn how existing and emerging technologies can enhance lesson effectiveness and student engagement. At the end of TIW, educators will leave prepared and excited for the coming school year with a newly updated unit plan.

Join us in the summer of 2019 to enrich your classroom curriculum by participating in this professional development workshop.

Dates: July 29 – August 1, 2019

Location: University of St. Thomas – Minneapolis Campus

Educators learn so much during the keynote and breakout sessions at TIW. They are introduced to new and emerging technologies as well as challenged to create innovative lesson plans for their classroom. The sessions are lively, timely, and fresh with new and leading educational trends being introduced.

Many entertaining and educational session presenters share their knowledge and experiences during the workshop, leading educators to think differently about how students learn today. Breakout sessions are used to introduce new teaching ideas, innovative educational technology tools, and resources for educators to access and increase academic knowledge in their classroom.

During the workshop, educators are paired with a volunteer from business or industry and spend an afternoon off-site at their volunteer’s office for a job shadow to experience the workplace in action. You’ll discuss today’s work environment, what employers are seeking in young employees, and trends in business. This allows educators to hear about and teach specific workplace skills to their students of all ages and prepare them for their future careers.

Each participant leaves the workshop with an updated unit plan that will be ready for the upcoming school year. During the workshop, participants are given time to apply the new information they’ve learned by modifying a unit plan. Prior to attending the TIW, educators pre-select the unit plan they will work on and are given time during the workshop to update it. These unit plans are then posted to BestPrep’s Technology Lesson Library after the workshop concludes.
