To know for beginning your workshop journey...

All workshops are offered for graduate-level credit and available to educators seeking re-licensure,
salary advancement, or professional development opportunities. Graduate students may also select
workshops, with advisor consent, for elective options as part of the Master of Education program in two
degree tracks: Teaching and Learning or Special Education High Incidence (P-12).

On-Ground Workshops meet entirely on-ground at the location provided. Each meeting date is listed,
along with the times for each day. You must be present in the class all days for the entire meeting time
to receive credit.

Blended Workshops are a combination of meeting in person and then completing the class online. You
must be present during the times for face-to-face meetings, and complete your assignments through
your Moodle account for the remaining online portion, by the ending date listed. You must enroll by the
“Enrollment Ends” date to allow time to establish Moodle accounts.

Online Workshops meet fully online through the use of Moodle. You will be able to interact with the
instructor and other students in the workshop. You are required to log in to your workshop on the first
day or you will be considered a “no show” and will be dropped from the course following contact
from the Graduate Workshops office. Depending on your instructor, you must check in once a day to
be considered active in your course. You must enroll by the “Enrollment Ends” date to allow time to
establish Moodle accounts.

Payment of tuition must be received in correlation with enrollment through Self-Service Banner (SSB) in

In order to enhance student learning, participants in this workshop will collect and reflect upon data
(Standard 4; Learning Forward Standards for Professional Learning), in order to design relevant and
rigorous learning experiences (Standard 1; KEPPS), for all students, in an educational environment
that promotes self-motivation and positive social interactions (Standard 3; KEPPS). Participants will
engage in research for the benefit of positive long-term change in the academic setting (Standard
6; Learning Forward Standards for Professional Learning). The focus of the workshop will be on
understanding the two mindsets (i.e., the growth mindset and the fixed mindset), and how each type
helps or hinders the learning process for students. The goal of the workshop is to not only understand
your personal mindset, on a deeper level, but to determine the mindset of each of the learners in your
care, so that you can begin designing learning experiences to transition those with a fixed mindset
to that of a growth mindset so that continuous improvement evolves, through a collective learning
environment effort, where both personal and shared goals align for the sake of the whole (Standard
1; Learning Forward Standards for Professional Learning). This course is an online class. Participants
will use Moodle to complete their work. Computer requirements may be found at: www.friends.edu/
technology/. Enrollment closes prior to start date to allow time to establish Moodle accounts.

Gamification is taking the elements of game-playing and using it in a non-game situation. Gamification
has moved from a business strategy for employees into an educational strategy for students and
educators. Learn how you can apply this concept in your classroom to increase student achievement,
motivation, and engagement. Using gamification is an excellent way to monitor your curriculum and
obtain more data to aid in making instructional decisions. It is much more than just rewards and playing
games. It is now being applied to the professional development process for teachers. This workshop
is appropriate for teachers and administrators interested in using this model for their classroom or
district. Join us for an in-depth study of how this strategy made its way from business into education,
the essentials of gamification, examples for students and professionals, how to use it for an instructional
advantage, and what the future holds for this innovative approach. This course is an online class;
participants will use Moodle to create all classroom work. Computer requirements may be found at:

This workshop will focus on developing a better understanding of the newer dimensions of the science
vision for education. The scientific method and term “inquiry” are better defined now with the science
and engineering practices. The cross cutting concepts are new to science education and link the
different disciplines in science and connect to other content areas. These two dimensions are essential
for the new vision of the 3-dimensional learning in science. This workshop also supports teachers in
the deepening their knowledge of the two newer dimensions of the 2013 Kansas Curricular Standards
for science and more importantly how to use the three dimensions in designing quality lessons for
students. Participants will examine and use resources from the NGSS web site and will engage in
hands on activities around modeling, the SEPs (science and engineering practices), and the CCC (cross
cutting concepts). Participants will have the opportunity to leave with a three-dimensional lesson plan
of a standard of their choice that will include phenomena. The participants will be working toward the
KSDE board vision results that their district is working towards in the areas of, post-secondary success,
civic engagement, kindergarten readiness and high school graduation. This workshop is primarily for
districts served by the Northwest Kansas Educational Service Center (NKESC) in Oakley. However, other
teachers may take this workshop. People outside the NKESC must register through Heather Stephens
at hstephens@nkesc.org or 785-672-3125. NKESC will collect $75 from Member District Employees and
$100 from each non-NKESC participant to cover the cost of the working lunch and materials provided
at the workshop. Checks are payable to NKESC through Heather Stephens on the day of the workshop.

It’s time to turn your classroom upside down; or rather your classroom instruction practices! Traditional
classroom settings offer heavily led teacher instruction and projects with content practice occurring
out of the classroom. Unfortunately, this homework approach may not support all students, as they do
not have access to the resources they most need. Imperfect practice only leads to a situation for re-
teach in the classroom. A flipped classroom allows teachers to introduce new content through videos
for students to view prior to class. Students are armed with background knowledge of the topics and
enter the classroom better equipped. Flipped classroom strategies provide educators wit the benefits
of emphasizing important points, while allowing students the benefit of learning at a pace suitable for
their needs. Students can pause, rewind, and review as many times as needed, prior to class. Teachers
may now devote more attention to assignments, projects, and individuals during class time. Join us as
we equip teachers with the tools and resources needed to design an engaging “flipped classroom”
that encourages student success and teacher interaction. This is truly an “Education Flipped”
experience. This course is an online class; participants will complete the work using Moodle. Computer

Students are growing up in a world of emerging technology that is ever-present in their lives. Research
shows that integrating technology in the classroom improves understanding and increases collaboration
among students. But do we, as educators, understand how to effectively incorporate this now termed
“new discipline” into our current teaching practice? Effective incorporation of the use of technology
provides connectivity, motivation, opportunities, greater developed teaching content, and excitement!
As educators, it is a responsibility that we impart an education which includes technology as a means
to prepare our students for success. Join us as we explore and evaluate technology and apps that can
be used to individualize instruction, allow for student collaboration, and better manage classroom
behavior. Participants will analyze introduced programs; gaining skills on technology management and
incorporation into teaching practices for student achievement. This course is an online class; participants

This workshop provides a framework for understanding what can be considered as trauma, as it relates
to neurological development. We will also discuss how trauma can alter brain development, and how
this manifests in the classroom. The training will provide an overview of one model that explains trauma,
the Neurosequential Model of Education and how the manifestation of undesired behaviors can be
understood within the context of this model, as well as discuss the role of the autonomic nervous system,
particularly as it relates to our work in the social realm. And, as time allows, we can discuss practical
activities and environmental considerations in schools to better aid individuals to overcome the affects
of trauma in their own lives. This workshop is primarily for districts served by the Northwest Kansas
Educational Service Center (NKESC) in Oakley. However, other teachers may take this workshop. People
outside the NKESC must register through Heather Stephens at hstephens@nkesc.org or 785-672-3125.
NKESC will collect $20 from each NKESC participant and $50 from each non-NKESC participant to cover
the cost of the working lunch and materials provided at the workshop. Checks are payable to NKESC on
the day of the workshop. This workshop will meet at the Northwest Kansas Educational Service Center,
