Streamline to Mastery Teacher-Driven Professional Development
  Location: KFC Courts
  Date: Monday, Aug.01
  Time: 8:00PM - 8:45PM
  Author: Samson Sherman, Univ of Colorado - Boulder
  Co-Author(s): Shelly Belleau, Susie Nicholson-Dykstra, Sara Severance, Emily Quinty
  Abstract: Streamline to Mastery is an NSF-funded learner-centered professional development program that seeks to capitalize on teachers' knowledge and experience to move newer physics teachers toward mastery. In this model, teacher participants choose their own goals and areas of growth and conduct research into their own teaching practices. Classroom research is conducted in close collaboration with pre-service teacher undergraduates, graduate researchers, and university faculty in a collaborative effort that benefits all partners in the pursuit of more effective and equitable K-12 physics education. Teachers will share their research findings, describe efforts to recruit and design professional development experiences for the next cohort of Streamline to Mastery teachers, and describe plans to scale this highly effective model of physics teacher education beyond the current funding structure.
  Footnotes: This research is partially funded by NSF grant #DUE 934921 and sponsored by Valerie Otero, University of Colorado, Boulder.
