The Innovation Collaborative is now offering its research-based STEAM professional development (PD) to teachers, administrators, and schools across the U.S. in in-person, online, and hybrid formats.
This professional development is based on the Collaborative’s five years of National Endowment for the Arts-supported research into the most effective practices that promote K-12 STEAM teacher and administrator success. The research was done in collaboration with master and classroom teachers, along with administrators throughout the country. K-12 educators from science, technology, engineering, the arts, math, English Language Arts, and social studies participated.
One hundred percent of the reporting participants said this STEAM PD helped them understand STEAM more deeply. They also stated that the PD resulted in effective changes in their practice. Comments included: “… one of the best (and most useful) professional development opportunities I have taken part in for quite some time” and “it had real stuff you can take ….and use right away”. It also was noted by participants that because of this training, there was an increase in their students’ abilities to think across disciplines for greater creativity and content understanding.
The professional development options are:
In-person: 1 day or 2 days, including virtual support
Online: A choice between 15 hours (basic) or 30 hours’ (comprehensive) training
Hybrid: Integrating in-person and online learning.
These trainings are customizable to meet the needs of specific schools and districts.
