Professional Development

Effective teachers commit to furthering their own learning as well as their students’ learning. Practicing educators take part in regular professional development opportunities in order to be effective and engaged teachers. The College of Education fosters this career-long commitment to learning and professional development by requiring our undergraduate students seeking initial licensure to complete a series of Professional Growth Units, or PGUs.

All undergraduate students in licensure majors who entered NC State in fall 2011 or later must complete a minimum of 4.5 PGUs prior to graduation. All MAT students must complete a minimum of 2 PGUs prior to graduation. It is recommended that all undergraduate students complete a minimum of 1.5 PGUs per year and MAT students complete a minimum of 1.0 PGU per year. You cannot complete all of your PGU requirements in one academic year.

The College holds a variety of professional development events each semester that offer PGU credit. Qualifying events lasting 45 minutes to one hour earn 0.5 PGU, with longer events earning additional PGU credit. The maximum number of PGUs a student can earn for a single event is 1.5. We expect students to have completed a variety of opportunities within their required PGUs. Therefore, attending the same PGU experience every year will not be accepted. For example, all PGUs coming from conference attendance will not be accepted.

This semester’s events are listed below.

Please check back frequently as new events will be listed as they become available.

PD 334 – Session 1: Flipping the Classroom: Why?

The flipped teaching format is a pedagogical approach that shifts direct instruction (lecture) from the classroom to the home via technology. Traditionally, students in flipped classrooms view short (10 min. or less) videos as homework. Consequently, a significant amount of classroom space
and time is created for students to practice application (activities, labs, hands-on learning, etc.) of the content they have learned. These two complimentary-sessions will focus on the “why” and “how” of the flipped classroom. The first session will make the research supported case for implementing a flipped classroom, while the second session will focus on the technical aspects of implementing this approach to instruction.

PD 545 – Talking Black in America: The story of African American Language

Join us for a viewing of the film, “Talking Black in America: The Story of African American Language”, followed by a Q&A session with Dr. Jeff Reaser, Associate Professor of English, NC State University.

Talking Black in America is the first documentary to portray the most controversial and misunderstood language variety in the history of American English. Filmed in locations from the Caribbean and South Carolina Sea Islands to the rural South and metropolitan areas of the North, it examines the historical roots of African American Language, its contemporary status in society, its essential role in everyday life, and its critical utility in artistic performance. The documentary is built around the comments and activities of everyday speakers and performers reflecting real-world experiences, curated alongside the observations of linguists, historians, and educators. It showcases the development and changing role of language in the lives of African Americans, as well as the remarkable impact it has had on the speech and culture of the United States and beyond. The documentary confronts the persistent stereotypes and prejudices about African American language and positions it solidly as an integral part of the cultural legacy of all Americans.

An estimated 2 million children experience the death of a parent under the age of 17.

PD 685 – Sexual Harassment Conversations with CED MAT students.

Recognizing Graduate Students as Key Partners in Campus Sexual Violence Prevention and Response

A campus shows commitment to cultivating a comprehensive approach to sexual violence prevention and response when graduate students are part of their programs. These students play a unique role in campus communities, hovering between undergraduates and faculty and staff. They are highly motivated, experienced both personally and professionally, have access to both undergraduates and employees, and often bring fresh new ideas to old problems. When it comes to sexual violence prevention and response, graduate students can serve as role models to undergraduates, and partners with campus employees. This interactive workshop will build upon their vital role in the community, empowering them with skills to be effective active bystanders and activists against sexual violence, while also equipping them with skills to be compassionate and informed friends and colleagues to survivors.
