Professional Development Wednesdays resumes

The College of Education & Human Development’s Professional Development Wednesdays Speaker Series, which provides opportunities to learn more about educational research, instructional technology and educator preparation, resumes this month.

The series offers four different types of presentations each Wednesday in February, March and April:

  • A Research Wednesdays presentation, an existing College of Education & Human Development series that brings cutting-edge researchers at the state and national levels to the college;
  • An Educational Research Bureau presentation, which gives attendees information about the grant funding process and how to establish partnerships with local schools;
  • A Learning Technologies Division presentation, which highlights trends in instructional technology and tips for using technology in the classroom; and
  • An Educator Preparation presentation, which provides faculty an open forum to discuss topics affecting educator preparation programs.

The speaker series is coordinated by Susan Ogletree, director of the college’s Educational Research Bureau, in collaboration with Joyce Many, associate dean of undergraduate studies and educator preparation; Steve Harmon, chair of the Learning Technologies Division; and with input from College of Education & Human Development Interim Dean Paul Alberto and chairs of the College of Education & Human Development’s six departments.

Professional Development Wednesdays are held at 12 noon in the College of Education & Human Development Forum, room 1030 (unless otherwise noted). Information about the speakers is available to the general public on the college’s website at and all presentations will be available for download at iTunes U.
