A Full Slate for CEO&I This Spring

The line-up includes conferences, roundtables, study tours and more
Spring is conference time at Teachers College and the Center for Educational Outreach and Innovations (CEO&I) is sponsoring several, many of which people may take for credit.
The Annual Winter Roundtable on Cultural Psychology and Education, the longest running continuing professional education program in the United States devoted solely to cultural issues in psychology and education, is scheduled for February 20 and 21.
The 4th Annual Health Disparities Conference at Teachers College on March 6 and 7 will include a corresponding online research seminar that presents evidence-based approaches to reducing health disparities, attitudes and beliefs. The conference will also include a Community Health Fair on March 7 that is open to the public and offers screenings for such things as AIDS, diabetes and breast cancer.
The 3rd International Conference of the International Society for Interpersonal Psychotherapy on March 27-29 will bring to TC psychologists from around the world to discuss research ideas and tools to enhance clinical practice and training skills. The conference is offered in collaboration with the Columbia University School of Social Work and the faculty of the Department of Psychiatry at Columbia’s College of Physicians and Surgeons.
Teach, Think, Play II: The Moving Image in the Classroom on April 4,5 and 25 will focus on informal education through popular culture and the media.
The 3rd Annual Mind and Body in Autism conference and course on April 17 and 18 will bring together researchers in the fields of child psychology, education, pediatrics and pediatric neurology to address the concerns and challenges facing autistic children and their families.
Digital Media in the Classroom: Active Learning with New Technologies on April 25 and the optional online class offered for credit (beginning March 1) will provide educators with information on how they can turn their students’ digital media skills into teachable moments by knowing how these tools can be used in the classroom.
Weekend workshops offer more opportunities for engaging in professional development and earning credits while hearing education scholars like Heidi Hayes Jacobs, Stephen Brookfield and Maxine Greene discuss their areas of expertise.
For an international interdisciplinary experience, study tours focused on language immersion or on teaching in diverse cultures offer learning opportunities during a week of travel to South America or Asia. Teaching Mathematics in Diverse Cultures goes to Argentina and Chile this year, and Teaching in Diverse Cultures offers a course in South Korea and Kyoto, Japan.
Wondering what to do during your summer vacation? CEO&I is putting together new professional development opportunities for educators, as well as one-of-a-kind experiences. One weeklong course in July, for example, will feature hours of newly digitized footage shot during the Vietnam War that had been previously unavailable to the public.
CEO&I often allows for registration until the time of the course or event. For details on these and other courses, call (800) 209-1245 or go to www.tc.edu/continuingeducation.
