A Santa Fe Professional Development Workshop June 14+15, 2021
The Institute for Computing in Research and the Computer Science Alliance will host a professional development workshop, aimed at CTE teachers in Santa Fe. The course will be taught by Jenna Marshall of the Santa Fe Institute, Ed Fenimore and Mark Galassi of Los Alamos National Laboratory.
Our goal is to raise the awareness of writing as an important part of student (and professional) training at all ages.
In this workshop we discuss how to train students aimed at technical fields in good writing practices. This will involve discussions of the writing process for reports, papers, books, as well as applications for university, jobs, and grants. We will demonstrate the relationship between these processes and the common core state standards.
There are no prerequisites except for having an interest in clear communication. We also encourage teachers to send their students.
This workshop is free for teachers and students, but space is limited so please sign up by email soon! Individual make-up is possible if you have to miss some of the time slots.
