School of Education continues free professional development in KC

Mon, 04/08/2019

OVERLAND PARK — The School of Education at the University of Kansas will host the third and final session of the 2018-2019 Strategies Event Series on Saturday, April 13, at the KU Edwards Campus.

The third session of the free professional development series, “Co-Teaching to Support Students with Learning & Behavioral Needs,” will feature Katie Zimmerman and Irma Brasseur-Hock, both from the KU Department of Special Education. The session will have participants explore ways to maximize co-teaching arrangements with other professionals to support students with learning and/or behavioral needs. Attendees are encouraged (though not required) to bring a colleague and will leave the session with templates to immediately support planning and delivery of co-teaching strategies.

The session will take place at 9 a.m. in Room 120 of the BEST Building. The session is free and open to the public, though an RSVP is required.

The first and second sessions of the series were held earlier in the academic year, and both featured faculty members from the departments of Special Education and Curriculum & Teaching as well as the KU Center for STEM Learning.

The School of Education partners with the Edwards Campus for the Strategies Event Series in order to bring high-quality academic programs, research and public service benefits of KU to the Greater Kansas City area.

The School of Education is located in Lawrence and is a nationally ranked school, preparing educators as leaders.
