Having taught in the classroom for several years, I recall in-service days every two months or so where teachers and administrators in the school district had the opportunity to network and learn about current issues in the K-12 classroom. The most impactful were those where I could walk away with a new skill, different approach, more in-depth knowledge, or greater insight which I could then apply to my work with students and share with my colleagues. The most beneficial in-service days consisted of sessions where there was more than the dissemination of ideas; they were professional development experiences where I was part of the learning process.
The Pre-Conference Workshop Program at BbWorld is designed to engage you in the learning process. Just prior to the official opening of BbWorld ’10 and over the course of three days – Sunday, July 11; Monday, July 12; and Tuesday, July 13 – we are offering a number of workshops constructed to equip you with new skills and share the collective knowledge of our Blackboard learning community.
