Our goal is to engage our colleagues through various methods of professional interaction to inspire educational approaches that support creativity, agency, inquiry, and culture.

Since effective professional development requires a community of scholars, many thanks to those who put time and effort into crafting presentations and discussions that spark interest for the Professional Activity Days. Likewise, thank you to those who participate with an open mind. Lastly, a round of applause for all of us who show up and do our best not only for our students but for ourselves as well.

 By the way

We created this website and all of the Open Online Courses using WordPress. The interactive pieces, like quizzes and multiple choice questions, were created using h5p  software (h5pwebsite), which is remarkably user-friendly. Please visit the CTE, or give us a call (517-483-1680) so we can show you how to create engaging, accessible, inclusive materials in WordPress.

From all of us,
Thank you.
