You choose the program!
Professional Development: 6 hours of PD credit for a three-session, comprehensive workshop on Design Thinking. Design Thinking allows educators to approach any challenge in a way that unpacks the problem and brings about creative solutions. Educators will explore the five phases of design thinking on Friday night and then review examples and participate in learner-centered activities on Saturday.
Advocacy: 2 hours of PD credit and four hours of advocacy. Participants will apply the technique of Design Thinking to “unpack” the problems facing our association on Friday night. Saturday morning, learn: how to find and support candidates for elective office, such as Board of Education or Town Council as well as the NJEA endorsement process, why it is important, and how to become an endorsed candidate. Saturday’s second session workshop, Negotiations and You, will provide information on the process, how it affects your career, what can and cannot be negotiated, prioritizing bargaining and the value of unity and member engagement.
