Several professional development (PD) workshops are offered to K-12 educators during the academic year. These PD workshops include Forensic Science for Educators, Hands-on Science and Active-Collaborative Learning (ACL) and Problem-Based Learning (PBL) methodologies for classroom instruction.

Interested in developing a forensic science course in your school? Want to learn how to set up a "crime scene"? Need more information about forensic techniques? CSI:Lawrence Tech, designed for educators, can help you develop your coursework, engage your students, and teach forensic science using an integrated science approach. You will work alongside police officers and experts trained in forensic science.

The Hands on Science workshop for DPSCD science teachers is a result of the partnership between DPSCD and LTU.  This workshop is an innovative approach of conveying science concepts to K12 teachers by doing hands on science activities.  Teachers attended the 2nd annual 1-day workshop held in the Science bldg. on May 20th. They explored inquiry based science activities that focused on the matter and DNA. Teachers explored traits, adaptations, and the structure and properties of the DNA molecule. For more information, please contact LaVetta Appleby, lappleby@ltu.edu.
During the workshop, participants will be introduced to Active and Collaborative Learning (ACL) and Problem-based Learning (PBL) techniques which are proven as highly effective pedagogies to develop both content and process skills for students at any age-level.
