Welcome from the President

Phi Delta Kappa Chapter 1524

Welcome to the 2016 Spring Semester!

Let’s first reflect back on some of our numerous achievements in 2015!

  • Our Executive Board members have given of their time, energy, and commitment to build and strengthen our Chapter and take pride in their efforts to engage participants in pursuits that are needed in today’s educational landscape. We congratulate them for their tireless efforts.

  • In 2015, graduate and undergraduate students, faculty, and guests attended five free professional development workshops. Participants received a “Certificate of Attendance” for each program that can be placed in their portfolio.

  • The fall workshops included: Updates on NYS Teacher Certification Requirements and Examinations, Literacy and Learning on the ALST, SMARTer Lessons: A Digitized Teaching Workshop – Part 1 & Part 2, and An Overview of edTPA.

Now in 2016, we celebrate our 30th Anniversary with a host of special events!  

  • Phi Delta Kappa Chapter 1524 was founded at LIU Post in 1986. Now 30 years later, we are still moving forward, with a continued focus on creating new opportunities for our members and preparing them for the challenges of the modern world. Chapter 1524 respects members’ ideas, values diversity of thought and experience, and recognizes the determination to discover what we still have to learn. We promise to keep evolving to serve you and look forward to celebrating our continued achievements in our 30th Anniversary year.

  • This spring, the campus is humming with the activity and promise that a new academic year brings.  We will host three additional professional development workshops: An Integrated Approach to the Social Sciences and Humanities: Introduction to the New Social Studies Framework and “SMART Board: Tips and Tricks for SMARTer Lessons: Part 1 & Part 2.

  • Once again it’s time for our annual membership drive.  We welcome undergraduate and graduate education students and all faculty, as well as alumni to become members of PDK International and PDK Chapter 1524.  You can obtain an application and additional information regarding PDK International and the LIU Post Chapter by emailing: roberta.levitt@liu.edu or lucille.devito@liu.edu

  • We invite you to become members this year and celebrate with us at our Annual Induction and Awards Ceremony, which is also our 30th anniversary on Thursday, May 5, 2016.

Your membership and support give us a real boost for providing quality professional development workshops, events, and time to create friendships and network, which can result in new educational opportunities. Members may cultivate professional relationships and work together in leadership, service, and research roles.
