Professional Development Workshops

The Center for Architecture offers customized workshops for classroom teachers and administrators that help staff infuse core curricula with STEAM education, using art, architecture, digital design, and engineering projects. Programs cover built environment education teaching strategies, activities, and curricula. Participants receive a classroom-ready resource and activity packet to help them integrate built environment studies into their curricula.

Professional Development Workshops may be included as part of a residency program or may be scheduled individually at the school or at the Center for Architecture.
