Science Professional Development

SMTC PD Mission: To provide sustained, high quality, research-based responsive facilitation of science-specific professional development to K-12 science teachers and administrators in Wyoming.

 

Text box reading: Students learn science best by engaging in the practices of science, in varying contexts, over time, as a learning community. It’s our job, as teachers, to facilitate this.

 

The Professional Development team, as in its current form, emerged as a result of decades of collaborations between the SMTC and school districts, community organizations, and other entities around the state and region.  We seek to support science education pre K-20 through collaborative endeavors that honor the expertise of all stakeholders, and are rooted in the research on science teaching and learning.

Ongoing District Workshops

Our PD work in school districts responds to teacher and district needs. The sustained PD we do with districts continues over time and takes different forms from group to group. Our supports range from multi-day workshops, to single days, and even to several hour targeted topic workshops. While we typically work in person with teachers in their districts, we've also expanded into virtual workshops that range from multi-day to several hour sessions. We have loved working with preK-12 teachers, instructional facilitators/coaches, and administrators across Wyoming; check out our district map (above) to see where we've been.

If you're interested in having the SMTC work with your science teachers, reach out to smtc@uwyo.edu
