The Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) Program funds innovative pre-kindergarten to grade 12 (P-12) science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and Informal Science Education (ISE) educational projects. Colin Johnson was the Director and CEO of Techniquest in Cardiff, Wales, from 1997 to 2004. Prior to joining the Techniquest staff in 1990, he had taught high school science, worked with pre-service and in-service teachers, authored a popular textbook, and worked in curriculum development. Johnson has been active in both ECSITE and ASTC, including serving on the ASTC Board of Directors.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – US2020, a nationwide network of more than 350 organizations to advance the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) fields, chose the DC STEM Network as one of 15 finalists for the STEM Coalition Challenge. Ninety-two partner networks, working to advance STEM mentoring and learning to underrepresented students, competed. The finalists will compete for $1-million in resources to implement their innovative approaches to STEM teaching and learning.
There is always a high demand for science and mathematics teachers. Increasingly there is a call for primary teachers with specialist expertise who can support schools to improve children’s learning in science and mathematics through the use of engaging and creative learning and teaching techniques. Learning outcomes describe the intended knowledge and understanding, skills and attitudes that you must master after completing your studies.
After almost nine months of analytical work, and fact-finding visits to Poland, the PSF Peer Review panel’s report and recommendations on the modernisation of the national science and higher education system -Â to make it more transparent, more competitive and better governed -Â were discussed at a special meeting hosted by the Polish Ministry for Science and Higher Education. The meeting was addressed by JarosÅ‚aw Gowin, Polish Minister of Science and Higher Education, and Robert-Jan Smits, Director-General of the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Research and Innovation. The findings of the report, and its recommendations, were presented by the Chair of the PSF Peer Review Panel, Professor Georg Winckler, President of the Association of the ERSTE Foundation and former Rector of the University of Vienna, as well as the Peer Review panel’s rapporteur, Jaana Puukka, an expert on higher education and innovation policy.
The courses comprising teacher education programs are unrelated to each other. The University of Georgia has one of the largest and most respected groups of mathematics and science education faculty in the world. All of our prominent researchers teach doctoral courses and direct doctoral dissertation studies. Our researchers also teach undergraduate courses, implementing knowledge generated through their research.
