Upcoming CoPI Events

The CoPI participants and steering committees are planning a number of events to showcase our work and highlight what we feel is the power of our “community.”  These events are designed to inform and entice interested teachers to become members in our growing movement to leverage the power of social learning and social authoring to meet the demands of teaching in a highly connected, highly demanding classroom.

Save the Date: CoPI Meeting, March 28
On March 28, 2013 sites around the state will be hosting An Invitation to CoPI meeting that will include information on how to become involved in CoPI. Many teachers and administrators have heard about CoPI and have asked for more information. This is your opportunity to learn if CoPI is right for you! More details and site information will be shared on this blog in February.

Seminar Series-Core Link
We have found that learning together provides us with a common understanding and the mutual respect needed in order to better accomplish our goals of creating quality curriculum and instruction. With this in mind, we are in the process of creating a series of seminars that will engage our community in what they want to learn most. Our seminars will be topical and timely, and will offer our members some of that just-in-time learning necessary to keep up with Iowa/Common Core and the changing demands of 21st century teaching and learning.

Summer Work Sessions, June 3-4
Summer is a busy time, but we found that it is the best time to spend a couple of days focused on digging into the detailed work of curriculum development and redesign. Members of the community meet together to review the work that has been done, access its effectiveness, determine where continuous improvement is needed, and set the course for additional unit/course development. All of this is done in the spirit of shared learning, shared respect, and the shared pleasure of getting together with people you have come to admire, respect, and enjoy through your association with the Iowa CoPI. Tentative dates for the 2013 Summer Session are June 3-4, 2013.
