Samford University's Orlean Bullard Beeson School of Education will host its annual Summer Teacher Education Workshop June 17-18 for general and special educators seeking professional development opportunities during the summer.

The two-day workshop will focus on developing content strategies, organizing the classroom and managing student behavior, recent developments in technology and reviewing effective teaching models.

Associate Professor and co-director of the workshop, Tarsha Bluiett, said she and education professor David Finn are offering the program to help educators in the community gain additional insight into Pre-K-6th grade teaching methods.

"This is a great opportunity for educators to strengthen knowledge of instruction as well as acquire researched based teaching strategies," Bluiett said.

Workshop registration is $60 for one day or $75 for both days. Participants will receive nine hours of Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
