Professional Development for EYW: Engineering Design & Analysis

Engineer Your World hosts several action-packed professional development institutes in Austin during the summer. Delivered by experienced consulting teachers, these sessions ask new teachers to alternate between wearing their “student hat” and “teacher hat” as they work their way through the entire course in just two weeks. The Engineer Your World professional development institutes:

    • Engage teachers in authentic engineering practices;
    • Enhance pedagogical content knowledge for project-based instruction;
    • Facilitate collaborative strategic planning; and
    • Establish the communities of practice that enable successful implementation.

The 2022 EYW: Engineering Design & Analysis professional development will be held in-person at The University of Texas at Austin’s J.J. Pickle Research Campus. There are two sessions to choose from :

Session 1: Monday, June 6 – Friday, July 17
Session 2: Monday, July 18 – Friday, July 29

There will also be special one-week training sessions for teachers who attended EYW: Engineering Design & Analysis training virtually in summer 2020 and 2021 and would like a refresher.
