TeachingWorks’ annual streaming seminar series is designed to support collective progress to design, implement, and study practice-based approaches to teacher training and development.
Each year’s series focuses on a particular challenge in this work and offers opportunities for learning and engagement for those who provide or study professional training for teachers and for those who design or implement public policy related to teaching quality.
The seminar series, entering its eighth year, has proven to be a valuable resource to the University of Michigan School of Education community. In 2011-2012, TeachingWorks greatly expanded the series' audience by streaming the seminars live online. Over 1,000 participants viewed the seminar on computers and mobile devices around the world. The online format continued in 2012-2013, and the audience grew to more than 1,300 participants from a dozen countries.
Seminars take place at the University of Michigan School of Education in Ann Arbor, MI, and are streamed live on the internet and then archived on the TeachingWorks website. Questions and comments will be actively solicited from those viewing the event online. Participation is open to all. Registration is required, but for the 2013-2014 year, there will be no fee to participate.
