On November 5th and 6th, education students from Professors Maureen Nosal and Judith Winogron’s Math (MTT 202) and Science (MST 202) Teaching Methods courses (respectively) attended the 2015 NJEA Convention in Atlantic City. Most of these students attended as members of the NJ Student Education Association, which allowed them to take advantage of all of the exceptional professional development experiences offered to full members. Other opportunities included interacting with advocacy groups to expand their understanding of prevalent issues concerning students and educational professions and exploring new teaching technologies affect the landscape of in-classroom teaching and pedagogy as a field of study.
The yearly NJEA Convention continues to be a wonderful experience for our students, wherein they learn much about their desired career field and themselves as teachers dedicated to becoming life-long learners. The relationships the students establish within the teaching and educational services communities have been shown to serve them well throughout their college experience and beyond, affording them opportunities that they may not have otherwise been aware of or had access to. We’re very proud of our exceptional students and their engagement and dedication to the educational professions.
