K-12 teachers at a workshop

Teacher Professional Development

Teacher WorkshopsThe Design Lab offers teacher development opportunities for educators interested in bringing design thinking into their classrooms. As this program grows, we plan to offer programs both in education about design and education through design. We will be gathering feedback from teacher professional development workshop participants to determine future offerings. These workshops are intended to guide teachers in developing hands-on lessons that use the design process to engage students in lasting learning that meets curricular standards in any subject area. Teachers in all grade levels and academic areas of study are welcome and encouraged to attend. Certificates of participation will be provided for teachers seeking Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
