Call for Presentators: Help Us Rethink STEM-D Education!
Pace University School of Education, The Lower Hudson Teacher Center Network, The New York Technology Educators Network and Southern Westchester BOCES are collaborating to present a conference on STEM-D Education - Rethinking STEM-D Education: Innovative Practices from the Field. This is an opportunity for teachers and researchers to share best practices with educators in New York City, Westchester and the surrounding counties.
You are invited to present the success you have had teaching Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and Design in the classroom. The day will begin with a keynote speaker and then workshop presenters will have 45-60 minutes to share their work with an audience of 15-20 teachers. Presenters will be asked to bring along samples of their students’ work and any other exemplars that will help conference participants implement STEM-D-rich learning experiences in their own educational settings.
We are looking for presentations that:
- Clearly describe learning objectives and student outcomes
- Integrate STEM-D practices into the curriculum
- Guide participants in how to create Maker Spaces
- Provide opportunities for students to invent, create, collaborate and share
- Contain project-based exemplars
Download the Presentation Proposal form. Proposals may be submitted by teachers, administrators or school teams. Please submit this form by March 1 to Merrill Lee Fuchs at email@example.com and we will notify you of the status of your proposal by March 15.
We are committed to helping teachers share practices and would like to assist educators who are interested in being part of this learning community. If you are uncertain about your proposal or would like assistance in preparing it, please contact Gerald Ardito or Sandy Flank.
