We Do STEM TEACHER PD
NOVA SySTEMic is committed to providing professional development (PD) opportunities for STEM educators in Northern Virginia in the areas of Cybersecurity, Makerspace and Woodshop Design, Programming, Robotics, and Technology Integration. Professional development focuses on introduction to concepts, skills training, lesson planning, and application. Teachers can attend professional development trainings at NOVA or through their school division on an as-needed basis throughout the year. Year-long and shorter single and multi-day professional development opportunities are available.
During the 2019 – 2020 school year, NOVA SySTEMic provided 24 hours of professional development to more than 45 teachers from the region. Professional development was provided free-of-cost to all attending teachers, who took a 4-day course in either Cybersecurity, Programming, or Robotics. Instruction was provided by Northern Virginia Community College staff and outside consultants who serve as leaders in their areas of expertise. SySTEMic will once again provide professional development opportunities for the region’s STEM educators based off the success of our first year of programming. Programs will launch in September and continue on a quarterly basis throughout the school year for up to 30 hours of professional development activity for participants. See below for 2020-2021 school year professional development training sessions, schedules, and additional details.
