Archive: NSTA/ASTE Archive: Building Tomorrow’s Science Teachers: The What, Why and How of Formal/Informal Partnerships for Teacher Education & Professional Development, July 28, 2022

Science learning, there is also an emerging body of research demonstrating the role and potential for museums to support the learning of both preservice and in-service teachers. Join us for a lively discussion with panelists from three different partnerships to explore the what, why, and how collaborations between universities and informal institutions can support teacher preparation and professional development.

All individuals receive a certificate of participation and 100 NSTA activity points for attending the live seminar and completing the end-of-program survey. A certificate of participation is not awarded for watching the recorded version of the program.

We invite you to register for upcoming web seminars at NSTA.
