Desarrollo profesional

Women of Color in STEM, Iowa Spotlight 

El desarrollo profesional para el personal fuera de la escuela es vital para el éxito de STEM en Iowa. Cuando el personal de tiempo fuera de la escuela tiene el apoyo necesario para implementar completamente los planes de lecciones STEM, construir mejores relaciones con los jóvenes y sus familias y apoyar a todos los participantes del programa, pueden ayudar a los jóvenes en su exploración de conceptos nuevos y emocionantes con confianza.

Se invita a educadores y profesionales extracurriculares a participar mientras exploramos el impacto de las desigualdades en la ingeniería y el aprendizaje STEM. Únase a nosotros para ampliar su "caja de herramientas" instructiva con herramientas, consejos y estrategias para abordar las desigualdades en el entorno de aprendizaje después de la escuela.

Estos seminarios web serán presentados por Active Community Learning Partnership (ALCP) y son parte de una serie de cinco partes que fue posible gracias a la subvención Million Girls Moonshot Innovator y el STEM Next Opportunity Fund. Todos los miembros del equipo ALCP están capacitados como observadores de las "Dimensiones del éxito" de STEM y están certificados por el Instituto PEAR de la Universidad de Harvard.
