Centenary College of Louisiana’s Education Department and the Center for Teaching and Learning are gearing up for the inaugural Full STEAM Ahead Teacher Symposium, a two-day event scheduled for February 8 and 9 at the Centenary College campus. Registration, which is priced at $45, is open until February 8, and interested participants can register and pay online at centenary.edu/fullsteamahead.

The symposium is set to offer a comprehensive experience for educators, featuring workshops, interactive collaborative sessions, individual presentations, panel discussions, and poster presentations. The event aims to foster professional development and networking opportunities for both current and future educators in the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) fields.

A notable highlight of the symposium will be a presentation by Dennis “DJ” Pevey, an esteemed Centenary alumnus and the recipient of the 2024 Louisiana High School Teacher of the Year award.

Dr. Terrie Johnson, chair of the Education Department at Centenary, shared insights into the symposium’s theme, stating, “The Full STEAM Ahead Teacher Symposium will focus on Kinetic Connections—connections that exchange energy! We want to facilitate connections between STEAM content area educators, between experienced educators and new educators, between K-12 educators and higher education educators, and between community partners and educators. Ultimately, these connections will benefit educators and, most importantly, students.”

Open to K-12 teachers, college/university educators, administrators, community leaders, and professional development providers, the symposium aims to create meaningful connections within the educational community, fostering collaboration and knowledge exchange.
