CTI to Share Ideas for Teaching about Energy
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) teachers will share bright, new ideas for teaching and learning about energy at a Charlotte Teachers Institute (CTI) event from 5:30 - 8:00 PM., Tuesday, Sept. 30, at the EnergyExplorium at McGuire Nuclear Station in Huntersville.
This free, public event, a "Teachers as Scholars" program, features CMS teachers who collaborated on the topic "The Nature of Energy: How We Use and Store It to Power Our Everyday Lives." It will highlight innovative curriculum they developed during a long-term CTI seminar, led by Susan Trammell, professor of physics and optical science at UNC Charlotte.
Sponsored by Piedmont Natural Gas and Duke Energy, the program will start with a reception and viewing of the EnergyExplorium’s exhibits from 5:30 - 6:30 PM, followed by presentations and a panel discussion with Trammell and CTI Fellows until 8:00 PM. Space is limited, so registration is recommended.
Multicultural Leadership Conference Set for Oct. 11
The University will host the 13th annual Multicultural Leadership Conference from 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM, Saturday, Oct. 11, in the Student Union. Equality and diversity activist and actor R.J. Mitte will be the conference’s keynote speaker.
The Multicultural Leadership Conference (MLC) is a one-day event for student leaders to explore the intersection of multiculturalism and leadership. Dynamic speakers and engaging workshops will provide participants with strategies and tools for effective leadership on both a local and global level. There also is a workshop for advisors and professionals who work closely with collegiate student leaders.
"We are most excited to host our students and students from neighboring institutes for a day full of remarkable content,” said Nadia Campbell assistant director of the Center for Leadership Development. “Not only will students learn about their own leadership, but they will learn to view and evaluate leadership practices through a multicultural lens."
