The Northeast Ohio Model Schools Project: A Pathway To Scaling Up Reform In Mathematics And Science, Joanne E. Goodell, Francis S. Broadway, Linda Gojak Mar 2002

The Northeast Ohio Model Schools Project: A Pathway To Scaling Up Reform In Mathematics And Science, Joanne E. Goodell, Francis S. Broadway, Linda Gojak

Francis Broadway

The Northeast Ohio Model Schools Institute (NOMSI) provided professional development for school-based leadership teams in standards-based mathematics and science teaching practices and leadership skills. Leadership teams from six local school districts were recruited to attend a two-week summer institute in August 2001, which focused on national standards, principles of effective professional development, an understanding of the conditions necessary for change. One or two faculty from the College of Arts and Sciences at each university also participated in the summer institute. Teams prepared a professional development plan for their school or district and received a mini-grant to implement their plan. Coaches ...

Museum Educators' Workshop Study: Attracting And Retaining Teachers In Museum-Sponsored Professional Development Programs, Steven R. Rogg Mar 2002

Museum Educators' Workshop Study: Attracting And Retaining Teachers In Museum-Sponsored Professional Development Programs, Steven R. Rogg

Steven R Rogg

In preparation for the Museum Educator’s Workshop, the Planning Team saw that a necessary first step would be to honor the perspectives of Chicago Public School (CPS) teachers and principals. Changes in Illinois Teacher Recertification requirements, changes within the CPS itself, and nation-wide developments in the teaching profession suggested that a fresh look at Chicago’s professional development landscape would be necessary. Indeed, many relevant questions about the role(s) of museums in teacher professional development were raised during initial Planning Team discussions. Here are just a few examples: Which organizations are the foremost providers of professional development for ...

Adaptive Teaching And Learning Environments In Science And Mathematics Education, C. Brahler, Gregory Crouch, Matthew Hudelson, Karen Hallgren, Abbie Brown Dec 2001

Adaptive Teaching And Learning Environments In Science And Mathematics Education, C. Brahler, Gregory Crouch, Matthew Hudelson, Karen Hallgren, Abbie Brown

C. Jayne Brahler

$100,000 National Science Foundation grant (co-principal investigator)
 
Abstract: Adaptive Teaching and Learning Environments (ATLes) is a project that is providing undergraduate science, mathematics, engineering, and technical students with problem-based, authentic learning activities designed to help them develop problem-solving skills and master content. The ATLes project is founded on constructivist learning theory and peer-to-peer faculty development while using technology to bridge learning goals and promote problem solving. Adaptive Teaching and Learning Environments is a collection of collaborative communication tools and content tutorials in science and mathematics education embedded into generative adaptive tutorials based on progressive disclosure of key concepts, facts ...
