A one-day Professional Learning Workshop for Middle and High school
A professional training for using Concept Mapping as a tool for
meaningful learning and helping students learn how to learn.
A unique opportunity to meet Professor Joseph Novak of Cornell
University- the creator of Concept Maps and the author of the theory
of Meaningful Learning - and his followers who are using Concept Maps
in everyday classroom environment (as well as gain some
re-certification hours). Please join us this summer at Boston
University on August 23d.
Research proves that using Concept Maps facilitates critical
thinking, deepens understanding and assists learners in developing a
self appraisal of their own thinking process (please, visit
sciencetalk.us for some links).
The workshop will be lead by Prof. Novak and James Gorman (an
experienced teacher and one of many followers of Professor Novak),
and will provide participants with a hands-on experience of using
Concept Maps and Concept Mapping Tool.
The ultimate goal of this workshop is to build a community of
educators who are actively using concept maps and sharing their
experiences with each other.
This Professional Learning Workshop is free (!), participants will
be provided with materials they can immediately use in the classrooms
and will be trained in using the materials. Professional Development
Credit is available.
The training will be held at Boston University, 590 Commonwealth
Ave, room B23; 9 am . 4 pm (with a lunch break). Participants
registered before July 25th will be provided with a free parking
If you are interested in attending the workshop, please, contact
Dr. Valentin Voroshilov at firstname.lastname@example.org (please, tell us a little bit
about yourself, your name, what do you teach, the best way to contact
you . thank you!). The program is sponsored by the Physics
Department of Boston University.
