KnightED Talks

KnightED Talks Workshops

What are the KnightED Talks workshops?
The KnightED Talks workshops, offered throughout the fall and spring semesters, provide teacher candidates with regular professional learning on topics of relevance to the teaching profession. The workshops, which are an hour long, are conducted by university faculty and K-12 educators who have expertise in areas of interest to students aspiring to become teachers. For this academic year's schedule, please refer to the KnightED Talks workshop calendar.     

The workshops, most of which are highly interactive, have been very well-received by students.  Students benefit from the additional preparation they receive to meet the increasing demands of the teaching profession.  They also receive workshop handouts and  instructional materials that they can add to their ever-growing resource files.  Finally, the experiences afforded them by the workshops can be added to their resumes and job interview portfolios. 

Past workshop topics have included:  (a) tips for interviewing for a teaching position, (b) classroom management strategies, (c) reading strategies, (d) incorporating music into the curriculum, (e) roles of guidance counselors, (f) survival tips for the first day of teaching and beyond, (g) turning disposables into bulletin board art, (h) grouping strategies, (i) cognitive processing strategies, etc.

How do I register for the KnightED Talks workshops?
Unless otherwise specified, no pre-registration is required; simply show up, learn, have fun, and gain experience to add to your resumes, professional portfolios, and teaching credentials.
