PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT EVENTS
SUMMER 2022 WORKSHOP SCHEDULE
Through our workshops and short courses, NYC teachers can earn CTLE hours. With moving image activities like animation, puppetry, game design, web design, and documentary and narrative filmmaking, teachers will enhance their digital literacy skills and increase student engagement. Workshops vary in price, depending on the CTLE hours being offered. Workshops are available onsite, virtually, or in a hybrid format.

July 29 and August 12: Join us this summer at MoMI for Making Connections through Puppetry: Educators, Counselors, and Therapists, presented by WonderSpark Puppets. Making Connections Through Puppetry is a two-part professional development workshop series that teaches educators, therapists, counselors, and parents how to use puppets when working with neurodiverse children, including those on the autism spectrum. Puppetry can be used as an effective learning tool and bridge for communication and motivation. Participants who have taken these workshops have gone on to use the skills that they learn to support child development and student IEPs, including joint attention, functional pretend play, social/emotional learning, empathy, de-escalation, impulse control, emotional regulation, language learning, and more. (4:00 p.m.–6:30 p.m.)
