Continuing Professional Education

Continuing Professional Education

The DoSeum is a convener of educators, a laboratory for research and teaching, and a leader in informal education. Educators who participate in The DoSeum Continuing Professional Education (CPE) programs will enhance their understanding of constructivism and inquiry pedagogy and approaches, learn new skills and techniques, and workshop lesson and activity plans to be implemented in their learning environments - whether formal classrooms or informal settings. DoSeum CPE choices will grow as the DoSeum CPE Team develops new offerings to meet the ever-changing needs of educators in our community. Currently, CPE sessions have been adapted to and are addressing the needs of educators who must engage in distance learning to adapt to the constraints presented by community responses to COVID.

Presented by a team of professional educators, our CPE sessions…

  • Explore the relationships between STEM, the Arts, and Literacy
  • Are rooted in constructivist principles and grounded in proven practice
  • Promote joyful learning through inquiry-based exploration, authentic discovery, and critical problem solving
