MATH & SCIENCE EDUCATION PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT VIRTUAL WORKSHOPS, SUMMER 2020

Indiana Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP) led by Purdue University is offering STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) focused professional development virtual workshops during the summer of 2020.

The workshops will include the themes of Collaboration, Integration, and Practice. Included will be information and interactive experiences with:

  • College and Career Integration
  • ACT/SAT Test Preparation
  • Tips and Best Practices for e-Learning
  • Math and Science Specific Activities for e-Learning
  • Math and Science Cooperative Learning Methods
  • Coding, Flipped Classroom, Note Taking, and Classroom Discussions
  • Integration of TI-84 and DESMOS Graphing Calculators

While space is limited, we hope to serve as many teachers as possible. Preference will be given to school teachers serving Indiana GEAR UP partner schools; however, additional space is available for teachers from surrounding school districts on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once registered, we will communicate via email to advise if you are confirmed to attend and provide program details. 

There are 4 sessions and each will be offered 4 times over the summer. Each session can be attended 1 time, for a maximum total of 4 sessions. We are paying stipends of $75 per session to those who attend. Attendees are expected to participate for the full 3 hours, fill out a brief action plan, and complete all payment forms to get the stipend and 3 PGP's for each unique session attended. At most a person can receive $300 and 12 PGP's if all 4 sessions are attended.

Dates and times for each session are listed below. Questions can be directed to gearuppd@purdue.edu.
