2015 Education Summit

The College of Education will host the 2015 Education Summit "Necessary Connectedness: The New Edge of Education."

Join international, national and regional leaders in education to discuss current research, practices and policies relating to education in the 21st Century. The event is designed for educators, administrators, policy makers, community leaders, teacher preparation leaders, pre-service teachers and others with a direct link to education in Iowa and the nation. This year’s summit will host three strands: Literacy Education, S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Education and Rural Education.

Elementary Literacy Conference

"Literacy, Leading and Learning: Integrating Inquiry, STEM, and the Common Core" is the theme of the 47th Annual Elementary Literacy Conference.

The conference will include multiple sessions on topics in the area of literacy, integrating inquiry, STEM and the Common Core. Featured speaker will be Steve Jenkins, author/illustrator, who has written and illustrated many nonfiction picture books for young readers including the Caldecott Honor winner What Do You Do with a Tail Like This? Many of his other well known favorites Time to Eat, The Animal Book and Eye to Eye will also be available for purchase and autographing by Jenkins during the conference. His books have been called stunning, eye-popping, inventive, gorgeous, masterful, extraordinary, playful, irresistible, compelling, engaging, accessible, glorious and informative.

A preconference event will take place at the Grout Museum/Bluedorn Science Imaginarium in Waterloo on Thursday, April 16. The preconference and conference events are sponsored by the College of Education, Bluedorn Science Imaginarium, Pioneer Graphics and Abrams Learning Trends. The conference is free for UNI students and faculty.

The Grout Museum District’s Bluedorn Science Imaginarium will host a book signing with conference speaker Steve Jenkins and special after hours science demonstrations.

Find out why the hissing cockroaches hiss, pet a python and see how furry a giant tarantula really is. This demonstration is inspired by Jenkins’ The Animal Book and is guaranteed to fascinate and creep-out even the boldest of visitors. Refreshments will be provided.
