‘Educators in Action” is the theme for the Nov. 13-15 Education Week celebration, featuring activities and resources for future teachers, an online conference on educational topics and a research symposium. All events, presented by the College of Education, are open to students, faculty and staff members and the public.
A book drive is being held to collect new and slightly used books for children ages 4-17, which will be donated to local schools. Donations may be dropped off Nov. 13-15 at the College of Education office, Room 500 of College Park, and at the Education-Classroom Building in Room 379.
“Education Week is an opportunity for students and others on campus to learn about the impact of earning a teaching credential or degree in education, and also gives current students and alumni the chance to share insights about the field of education,” said Lisa Kirtman, dean of the College of Education.
