CCC Has Tuition-Free Workshops

CCC Has Tuition-Free Workshops Camden County College is offering dozens of tuition-free workshops on a range of topics in history, literature, science and culture during the Spring 2007 semester. Each session is open to the general public yet geared toward helping teachers create mind-activating lessons for their students.

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.

Available this semester are 58 individual on-campus workshops in 13 series and six off-campus sessions. All are being offered on a tuition-free basis, but fees will be charged for the off-campus workshops at the Mutter Museum, the New Jersey Academy for Aquatic Sciences, the Rosenbach Museum and Library and the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.
