STEM Certificate Course Winter/Spring Session – fully online

Six Saturdays this January through April

Join us for the 6th cohort of the STEM Certificate Course, which exposes teachers to everything STEM educators need to know and be able to do. This course engages participants in unpacking the knowledge and skills required of STEM educators, while adapting the content to their subject area, students and community. The 11 course modules, scheduled over 6 Saturdays from January to April, cover topics such as the framework for high-quality STEM, standard-alignment, the engineering design process, diversity and equity in STEM, real world connection, and STEM pedagogy. The final project, presented during the last session, is an integrated STEM Challenge, which is aligned with all components of high-quality STEM. Graduate credit is available. Registration will be opening soon. For more information visit our webpage, and contact Donna Taylor with any questions.
