PLTW 2013 State Conferences
WSU Spokane will partner with Seattle University in 2013 to offer two State Conferences covering both the Biomedical Sciences (BMS) and Engineering (ENG) programs. Annual State Conferences are intended for: (1) school districts interested in detailed information about the BMS and ENG high school, middle school and new elementary school programs; (2) school districts currently implementing PLTW to provide administrators, teachers and counselors with regional and national updates and professional development opportunities; and (3) business and industry leaders wanting to learn more about supporting quality STEM programs. School districts should plan to send district administrators, high school principals, counselors and teachers.
The keynote speaker at both 2013 conferences will be Ellen Ebert, Science Director for Teaching and Learning, OSPI. As one of the leaders who helped develop the Next Generation Science Standards, she will be presenting state and national perspectives on science teaching and learning.
Specific breakout sessions will focus on steps to implementation, models of implementation including course credit options, requirements for school certification, updates on college credit opportunities, lab support by Master Teachers, and updates on school and PLTW student assessments. Clock hours will be available for teachers and counselors.
