2nd Annual Workshop for Bridging UTeach & Engineering – plus Computer Science
April 2, 2018
CASTLE is home to
DragonsTeach, a secondary certification program for STEM majors based off a model developed by the
and supported by the
National Math and Science Initiative. Over the last few years, a conversation has been ongoing to increase participation of the engineering and computer science disciplines in the UTeach community. In an effort to expand this discussion, the Second Annual Workshop for
Bridging UTeach & Engineering – plus Computer Science
was hosted in Boulder, Colorado from January 25-26, 2018.
The one-and-a-half day workshop was a collaborative effort set forth by the National Science Foundation and the UTeach programs at Drexel University's Center for the Advancement of STEM Teaching and Learning Excellence (CASTLE), The University of Colorado at Boulder's School of Engineering, and Boise State University. More than 70 UTeach co-directors and engineering and computer science faculty from approximately 30 UTeach sites came together to explore the opportunities (and pitfalls!) of expanding their institution’s UTeach program to include math and science secondary teacher licensure through an engineering or computer science degree pathway.
