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. The Government of India, through the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), has established seven Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research (IISER). These institutes are located in Bhopal, Berhampur, Mohali, Pune, Kolkata, Thiruvanantapuram and Tirupati. 1986. “Research on Teacher Education.” In Handbook of Research on Teaching, 3rd edition, ed.

Washington, DC—Marlena L. Jones, Acting Director of Carnegie Academy for Science Education (CASE) and the DC STEM Network has been accepted as one of 22 fellows in the inaugural class of LEAD STEM, a new national leadership development experience designed to empower and arm individuals with high level skills to shape the future of STEM education in the U.S. Fellows are meeting in person for the first time today in Kansas City, MO as part of the STEM Learning Ecosystems National Community of Practice Convening.
Primary Connections : Linking science with literacy provides primary teachers with comprehensive curriculum and professional learning resources that link the teaching of science with the teaching of literacy. Delivered by the Australian Academy of Science, Primary Connections focuses on developing primary students’ knowledge, understanding and skills in both science and literacy, through an inquiry-based approach.
To achieve its goals, Science & Education fosters collaboration among scientists, mathematicians, historians, philosophers, cognitive psychologists, sociologists, science and mathematics educators, and school and college teachers. Frontier Research and Current Debates in STEM Education: This module provides an opportunity to interact with frontier research being carried out in the university as well as the most pressing topics and concerns that STEM education faces nationally and internationally (where “STEM” is science, technology, engineering and maths).
The programme is suited to science educators at all levels but in particular to science graduates who wish to gain an insight into the educational underpinnings of their discipline in order to apply their knowledge outside of their specialised field. This programme also caters for students with backgrounds in social science and humanities who have a professional interest in science.
