STEM Education Leadership Opportunities
Change in teacher practice is the key to improving student performance in STEM area disciplines. Endeavor provides the comprehensive training educators need to effectively teach STEM content and integrate STEM pedagogical strategies (e.g., engineering design, science inquiry, math applications, instructional technology for understanding). This includes work with Next Generation Science Standards and the Common Core, if desired. 100% of Endeavor educators ultimately earn a 3- or 5-course Certificate in STEM Education from Teachers College, Columbia. Each Endeavor educator becomes a champion in their school(s) and district, leading efforts for integrated STEM education and enacting change in their classroom and beyond.
Educators may participate by:
- Taking five (5) Endeavor courses and earning a STEM Certificate as part of a low-cost Masters Degree, or
- Earning a special, three (3)-course STEM Leadership Certificate in 6-9 months.
Endeavor participants may opt to complete coursework by developing electronic portfolios which also meet the portfolio requirements for earning National Board Certification.
Endeavor courses benefit all educators of STEM content, from elementary generalists to AP educators to special educators. This includes STEM coordinators, math and science coaches/supervisors, educators running or starting STEM schools or career academies, or anyone responsible for integrating math, science, technology, and engineering curriculum strands across grades K-12.
