Professional Development

Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum offers nationally recognized design literacy-focused professional development workshops for K-12 educators from across the country.  

Educators who have used design in the classroom state that their students become more engaged and active learners with improved writing, presentation, collaboration, and problem-solving skills.  

Aligned with National and Common Core Standards, STEAM instruction, and 21st Century Skills, Cooper Hewitt’s professional development workshops introduce educators to design literacy as a vehicle for learning, creative problemsolving, and collaboration across all disciplines. 

Think of design literacy as a new tool in your teaching toolbox.
