Educators, administrators and paraprofessionals attending Nicolet College’s Northwoods Academy this summer will have 15 different workshops to pick from during this professional development event Aug. 6-10 on the Nicolet campus just south of Rhinelander.
This year pre-kindergarten through college-level instructors and educational personnel will be able to pick either week-long workshops or new half-week options. The workshops will cover numerous topics with many focusing on how to use a wide variety of new technology in the classroom.
The keynote speaker this year will be Angela Maiers, an experienced educator and trainer who is noted across the nation for effectively blending literacy and technology to improve student success. Her presentation, Getting Technology R.I.G.H.T. for Your Learning Community, will kick off the week Monday morning, Aug. 6.
The Academy, in its 15th year, will also feature two general sessions with panel discussions with representatives from Harley Davidson, Wausau Paper, the Oldenburg Group and the Union Pacific Corporation.
The cost to attend is a $50 non-refundable registration fee, and $250 for the week, or $125 for the half-week academy. Participants will also have the opportunity to earn graduate credits. Graduate credit tuition is extra.
