New Professional Development Institute for Implementing Investigations Curriculum Opens for Registration

May 29, 2009

The Investigations Implementation Center will be hosting a three-day Professional Development Institute from September 23-25, 2009 in Phoenix, Arizona.

The Professional Development Institute 1 is designed for math leaders and coaches responsible for professional development in the first two years of implementation of the 2nd edition of Investigations in Number, Data, and Space. At this Institute, participants will:

  • learn how the curriculum can be used as a tool for professional development
  • consider what are essential professional development offerings for teachers in the initial years of implementation
  • examine design and facilitation of professional development sessions to support teachers using Investigations
  • discuss leadership issues which impact math professional development
  • experience sessions which participants can use in their own professional development program

The Institute includes whole group and workshop sessions, panel presentations, and whole and small group discussions. Participants will also have time to plan and discuss how they will use the professional development materials at their own sites.
