Active Learning Specialist Summer Institute in Rockland County, NY

Educators from Rockland County, NY are invited to attend the Active Learning Specialist Summer Institute Tuesday July 9 – Thursday July 11, 2019 at the Rockland BOCES Conference Center, 95 Parrot Road, West Nyack, NY.   Sessions will run from 9 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.  Participants will earn an Active Learning Specialist Certificate after submitting an active learning plan for their classroom or school. Sponsored by the Rockland County Department of Health, the East Ramapo Central School District’s Teachers Center, Harrisburg University and Fizika Group, the Institute will feature opening presentations by Carrie Steindorff, School Health Coordinator at the Rockland County Department of Health, Suzy Koontz, Founder of Math and Movement and Martha Harris, Founder of Fizika Group, LLC.
The course was included in the grant budget for East Ramapo Central District because of Carrie’s positive experience when she took the course in 2014:  “The Active Learning Specialist course provides insight into how best to use physical activity in school to help kids learn and move more, as well as bridge the gap between public health and education.” 
Carrie Steindorff, School Health Coordinator Rockland County DOH
The on-site Summer Institute gave the participating teachers time to meet and collaborate with one another on the development of active learning plans for their schools. The Institute will be followed by time for them to complete the remaining assignments and upload their active learning plans to the online course. Enroll today and earn CEU or graduate credit while creating an active learning plan to help enhance student engagement in learning. ERCSD flyer for Active Learning Summer Institute
