Registration is still open for the 2012 NSRC Science Education Institute for Leadership Development and Strategic Planning. This 6-day institute will build on the great work from February’s Synergy — it will guide your district team through the development of a tailored strategic plan for initiating and implementing (or expanding and sustaining) an effective, research-based science education program. During the institute, your team will explore research and best practices in the five elements that support systemic science education reform: curriculum, professional development, materials support, assessment, and administrative and community support. An added feature this year will be visiting local businesses to learn more about the skills they look for in new hires.
The Institute will be held Jul 8-13, 2012 in Washington, DC, click here to learn more about the institute.
