NYSUT’s Suffolk Regional Office is pleased to offer FREE professional learning seminars to our members.  These seminars are developed by NYSUT’s Education Learning Trust and are designed to improve student learning and enhance professional practices in education.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, these seminars are available online only.

These seminars are FREE to NYSUT members.

These are the first in a number of free seminars which the Suffolk Regional Office will be offering.  Information and registration links for additional offerings for the fall and winter will be sent via separate email in the next few days.

The current learning plans, which have been implemented in response to the pandemic, have placed our members and students under tremendous strain.  The workshops below have been designed with that in mind to aid them when it comes to planning and best practices in the current remote learning environment.

Registration is maxed at 40 participants per seminar, so please encourage your members to sign up early.

Purposeful Use of Instructional Technology

The power of instructional technology resides not in any particular application, website, or device, but in how teachers employ these tools to advance student learning. In this seminar, you will explore K-12 appropriate models demonstrating when and how to strategically plan for technology in any scenario (e.g. in-person, hybrid, remote learning, etc.), as well as standards-based best practices for fundamentally redesigning instruction using technology across the curriculum.

Wednesday, November 4th 4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.




Saturday, November 7th 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
