Transforming Geoscience Preparation for K-8 Pre-Service Teachers

Announcement from SERC - application deadline is February 19, 2016

Are you involved in K-8 pre-service science teacher preparation or in-service teacher professional development, or are you an in-service K-8 science teacher? Are you interested in exploring strategies for strengthening K-8 science teaching, through both science content knowledge and science teaching methods? If so, this workshop is for you. Join a group of like-minded science and education faculty and in-service science teachers at St. Norbert College, in De Pere, WI, April 8 & 9th. Teams of science and education faculty from the same institution are particularly encouraged to apply, and will be given priority in acceptance. Participants' housing and meals will be paid for through a grant from the National Science Foundation.

See the workshop website to learn more and to fill out an application form. The application deadline is February 19th:
