We provide in-person and virtual one-day workshops for individual teachers or other educators who are interested in learning more about ADI. These professional learning experiences are a great way to try out the ADI instructional model.
Introduction to ADI
Our Introductory to ADI workshops are designed to provide educators with a foundational understanding of the ADI instructional model. We provide hands-on, learner-centered professional learning experiences that help participants develop the experience and knowledge they need to feel confident using or supporting the use of ADI in classrooms.
Our Introduction to Argument-Driven Inquiry in Engineering workshop is designed to provide educators with a foundational understanding of the Argument-Driven Inquiry instructional model as it applies to Engineering in Middle School (6-8), however, the knowledge is transferable to High School (9-12).
Our Introduction to Argument-Driven Inquiry in Mathematics workshop is designed to provide educators with a foundational understanding of the Argument-Driven Inquiry instructional model as it applies to Math in High School (9-12), however, the knowledge is transferable to Middle School (6-8).
Next Steps Workshops
Our Next Steps workshops are designed to help educators learn new teaching practices that will help them get the most out of the Argument-Driven instructional model. Teachers will have opportunities to examine student work, learn how to facilitate productive discussions, create resources such as their own investigations and assessments, and practice teaching the different stages of an ADI lab.
The Facilitator Institute (formerly Train the Trainer) is designed to help district supervisors, instructional coaches, and teachers develop the knowledge and skills needed to be able to host Introduction to ADI workshops for teachers in their own district.
Embedded Instructional Coaching
- The Embedded Instructional Coaching workshop is designed for district science supervisors, instructional coaches, science specialists, or department heads who want to learn how to do embedded instructional coaching for teachers learning how to use ADI. You must have completed an ADI Train the Trainer Institute within the last three years to be able to register for this workshop.
