August 10, 2015 : “So You Think You Can Teach?” Series Returns for Second Year
- Cheri Russo
Communications and Marketing Manager
 
Lancaster – The second year of “So You Think You Can Teach?” will begin on Tuesday, August 25.  The weekly professional development series was developed last school year by the Ohio University Lancaster Campus Chapter of the Ohio Student Education Association for education students on campus. The idea behind the workshops is to make sure that teacher candidates on campus are prepared for the real world upon graduation. 
 
“We are thrilled that the series was such a hit last year with students,” said OSEA Advisor Terri Green. “We look forward to the opportunities this year’s workshops will bring.
 
OSEA won an Outstanding Programming Award given by Ohio University last spring during the 32nd Annual Leadership Awards Gala in Athens. The leadership awards gala celebrated the theme “Inspire.” Sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs in collaboration with the Career and Leadership Development Center (CLDC) and Event Services, this annual tradition of Bobcat Pride provided an opportunity to applaud OHIO’s students and their outstanding demonstration of the University’s five core values – character, commitment, civility, community and citizenship.
 
During the 2015-26 academic year, the workshops will be held every Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Brasee Hall room 414. The workshops are held during the lunch hour, and students are encouraged to bring their lunch with them to eat during the sessions.
 
Education professionals from Lancaster and surrounding communities speak at the sessions to share their knowledge and expertise with OUL students. The relationship formed between OUL OSEA education students and community school leaders during the workshops has opened the door to many opportunities for students to volunteer in local school districts.  Students then gain valuable experience working in the classroom.
