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 codirector 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 PreK-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).
