CURRENT OFSHEEA NEWS

Food and Fashion Labs

Great News! OFSHEEA will once again be offering our popular Food and Fashion Lab workshops in preparation for the new school year. These workshops are great opportunities for teachers to improve their confidence and skills when teaching practical content to students!

One of the most fun and rewarding aspects to teaching Nutrition and Fashion courses is the hands-on component.  Fostering students’ skill development while keeping them as safe as possible is a challenge that we want to prepare you for. To this end, OFSHEEA wants to share an upcoming opportunity for professional development created for teachers new to family studies (or for those just looking for a refresher).  

OFSHEEA will be offering 2 different virtual workshops via zoom, one on how to run Food Labs and another on Fashion Labs.  The dates and times are as follows:

Fashion Lab Workshop  –  Wednesday August 24, 2022   9:30am  –  12:30pm

Food Lab Workshop –  Tuesday August 30, 2022  12:30pm – 3:30pm
