Not only do I enjoy learning from professors and researchers, but I always look forward to being in the presence of other high school psych teachers. I've always been "the only psych teacher in the building" so I always relish the chance to learn from others in person. My favorite professional experience as a teacher was the month I spent in '95 at Ithaca College as part of an NSF workshop for psychology teachers, where I think I learned just as much from my fellow workshop participants as I did from the college folk.
I'll post updates from the workshop as I can during the week. But how about you? How are you spending your summer? Take a moment to add a comment below about what you are doing (professionally or just for fun!) this summer!
