In this 90-minute webinar hosted by the American Association for the Advancement of Science ARISE Initiative, we heard how two Noyce projects engage pre-service teachers in STEM research.
First, Dr. Christine Cutucache will discuss how the NSF-sponsored NoyceSCIENCE program at the University of Nebraska at Omaha has thoughtfully sought ways to provide meaningful, hands-on teaching experiences to students while serving their community. In her presentation, she will discuss how the project is supporting, developing, and sponsoring scientists that become teachers.
Next, Dr. Elisa Stone and Arash Jamshidi will discuss the CalTeach program at UC Berkeley. The program requires all undergraduate students, including Noyce scholars, to engage in a STEM or STEM education research experience before they enter the classroom. Currently, research projects focus on data science in the context of engineering. Stone and Jamshidi will describe their Summer Research Institute in detail, sharing samples of specific research projects, evidence for undergraduate learning, and examples of how alumni transfer what they learned into their own classroom work.
