Professional Development

The SENSE IT Professional Development (PD) program aims to provide teachers with: thorough instruction on the curricula they will be teaching; effective classroom management strategies; support to strengthen teacher content knowledge of sensors and sensor systems and relevant STEM concepts necessary to implement the SENSE IT activities; and technical assistance to effectively implement the SENSE IT program with students.

SENSE IT PD is available in two formats, a 4 day (1 week) face to face experience or a modular approach with a series comprised of a one day face to face workshop focused on one sensor followed by 3 support webinars. The series includes workshops focusing on the temperature sensor, the turbidity sensor, the conductivity sensor, the depth sensor and constructing a wireless sensor network.
