FOND DU LAC, Wis. — Marian University’s School of Education will be hosting their John Reilly Educational Series, entitled “Technology for the Timid and the Tenacious: 21st Century Approaches to Teaching and Learning,” on Thursday, August 18 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Stayer Center.
This workshop/series will focus on how effective teaching in the 21st century requires more than a basic understanding of educational theory and classroom management. Educators will be charged with moving our society into a new world filled with technological tools and learning how to harness the power of these tools for the next generation of students.
The John Reilly Education Program is made possible through the generosity of Shelly and Ralph Stayer. The program is named after Shelly’s father, John Reilly, who was a business man in Fond du Lac County for 40 years. This year’s event is the seventh event in the series.
Marian University is offering one to two graduate credits for participants in need of professional development credits. Credit is offered through the Institute of Professional Development and Virtual Learning at $250 per credit. Graduate credit is obtained by attendance and completion of course requirements.
This program is free for non-credit-seeking participants. For a complete listing of the workshop sessions or to register, visit https://www.marianuniversity.edu/johnreilly. For more information about the workshop, contact Dr. Sue Stoddart at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 920-923-7170.
