STEM Educator Innovators: Secondary Cohort
Opens Sep 1 2022 12:00 AM (MDT)
Deadline Nov 18 2022 11:59 PM (MST)
Description

The first cohort of STEM Educator Innovators will comprise 30-35 secondary educators that teach a STEM content area, including Math, Science, and CTE: Technology & Engineering at a public education institution in the State of Utah. Applicants must be established in their teaching career,  and must have completed teaching a minimum of three full school years in the secondary (6-12) grades prior to starting the program. Applicants must have a Professional  or Level 2 teaching license for the secondary grades. 

The time commitment for participation is five school years (for details on each year, see Program Timeline in this document). While engaged in the program, participants must agree to stay in the classroom as an educator of secondary students. They must also complete a master’s degree in a STEM content area or related area of education if they do not start the program with a master’s degree in any field. 

Participants will develop teacher leader and mentor skills while also identifying and solving a problem of practice. A problem of practice, in this context, is a problem that a participant has experienced within their work as an educator.  Based on their problem of practice, participants will develop a personalized plan which will provide learning opportunities for them to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to address their identified problem. While developing their expertise, participants will work with existing subject matter experts (SMEs) to develop, implement, and evaluate a solution to the problem. These problems of practice can be addressed independently or with a small group of cohort participants.

This program will be delivered primarily in a virtual format, with both synchronous and asynchronous learning opportunities.
