About Professional Development

This past year, CESTEM hosted 25 professional development (PD) programs and outreach activities and served 518 participants, totaling 5,875 of contact hours of instruction, with most awarded licensure renewal or graduate credit hours.

For the 2014 - 2015 year, our Professional Development evaluations have proved that

  • 75.23% of teacher participants stated that they would incorporate the content from the program in their classroom often and/or to a great extent
  • 95.41% of teacher participants stated that they would recommend the program to other teachers
  • 92.66% of teacher participants agree and/or strongly agree that the program deepened their understanding of science/math concepts

CESTEM will maintain the number of Professional Development (PD) opportunities, participants served, and contact hours offered to our partners; continue to market PD opportunities more directly to UNCW students, teacher candidates and K-12 teachers in the classrooms; and begin efforts to engage social media (Facebook, Twitter, Website) to increase PD workshop awareness and interest.
