ANNOUNCEMENT: The 2018-2019 Teachers as Scholars Program, sponsored by The College of New Jersey and the Professional Development School Network (PDSN)
The Teachers as Scholars Program was created 11 years ago through the collaborative effort of TCNJ’s Professional Development School Network (consisting of 18 partner school districts), The College of New Jersey, and the Woodrow Wilson Foundation for the purpose of providing a selection of content-related seminars geared toward subjects of particular interest to K–12 educators.
The goals of the PDSN seminars are:
1. To foster and promote teachers as academic and intellectual leaders by giving them time to reflect and discuss new ideas
and recent scholarship with colleagues;
2. To give (over time) equal opportunity to all teachers in a district to examine and learn cutting-edge scholarship as part of
their work day;
3. To encourage professional relationships between arts and science faculty and classroom teachers, while improving
articulation between K–12 schools and higher education.
TAS seminars are two-day professional development events led by the outstanding faculty members of The College of New Jersey. Teacher-scholars who are selected for participation by their school districts can choose from an array of seminars (described in this brochure); those who successfully participate and complete TAS seminars are awarded 10 professional development hours. Each seminar is presented on the scenic campus of The College of New Jersey and runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
