2019-2020 Teachers as Scholars (TAS) Schedule
The TAS was created 12 years ago through the collaborative effort of TCNJ’s Professional Development School Network, The College of New Jersey, and the Woodrow Wilson Foundation for the purpose of providing a selection of content-related seminars geared toward the particular interests of 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; and
3. To encourage professional relationships between arts and science faculty and classroom teachers, while
improving articulation between K–12 schools and higher education.
