Free Summer Workshops at CCC

by Press Release-CCC | Jun 5, 2006
Free Summer Workshops at CCC Camden County College is offering dozens of tuition-free workshops to help teachers create mind-activating lessons and earn professional development during Summer 2006. These sessions are open to the public as well.

CCC is an official New Jersey Department of Education Professional Development Provider and the first out-of-state institution approved as an Act 48 Continuing Professional Education Provider for Pennsylvania. Its teacher courses and workshops offer New Jersey and Pennsylvania educators the opportunity to bolster lessons with fresh material while satisfying professional-development requirements for maintaining state certification.

Providing development hours this semester are 47 individual on-campus workshops in 11 series and two one-day off-campus sessions. All are being offered on a tuition-free basis, but nominal fees will be charged for the off-campus workshops at the New Jersey Academy for Aquatic Sciences and the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.

Although geared toward teachers, Camden County College students and members of the public are welcome to attend as well. No tuition will be charged for these participants, either, but registration is required for all attendees.

Workshop series are “Early Childhood Development” (May 30 and June 6, 13 and 20); “The Cookery of Art!” (May 30 and June 6, 13 and 20); “Murders That Changed the Course of History” (May 30 and June 6 and 13); “America and the New Age of Terrorism” (May 31 and June 7, 14 and 21); “Black Hollywood Film” (June 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29); “Exploring Irish Cultures” (June 1, 8, 15 and 22); “Relationship Enrichment” (June 5, 12, 19 and 26); “Tales of the Strange and Horrible” (June 5, 12, 19 and 26 and July 10); “Open the Classroom Door to Education” (June 28 and July 5, 12, 19 and 26); “Hitler: A Study in Tyranny” (July 5, 12, 19 and 26 and Aug. 2); and “The Environmental Debate” (July 10, 11, 12 and 13).

This semester’s off-campus selections are “Adventure Aquarium Beach Walk” (New Jersey Academy for Aquatic Sciences, July 8) and “King Tut in Philly” (University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, Aug. 3).
