Van Andel Education Institute (VAEI) designed its professional development programs based on research findings that optimal learning of science occurs through a process of inquiry. Driven by our mission to promote and strengthen science education by providing opportunities for teachers to more effectively engage their students in inquiry-based science education, VAEI has developed the Community of Practice model.
Join us for training at our facility, in your school, or a combination of both. Trainings are immersive in nature, allowing educators to experience the Community of Practice model while gaining specific strategies to make inquiry-based Science a reality in their classroom.
Get the best of both worlds by developing a PD plan that combines face to face and online learning experiences.
Take part in our online courses and customized webinars to receive the same instructional methodology and strategies in a virtual environment.
