Teachers in Industry: Projects

Participating teachers complete various projects depending on their involvement in either the Master's Degree or the Professional Development options. 

All teachers make extensive workplace observations relating to content, skills and practices. These observations are later developed into a teachable unit based in Problem Based Learning (PBL) using the foundational principles from Understanding by Design (UbD).

All teachers in the Master's Degree option research, plan, implement and collect data for an Action Inquiry (Action Research) project from the 2nd through 3rd summers in our program.  These projects must have a stong connection both to a significant problem of practice the individual teacher works with in their classroom, and to their summer work experiences.  From this research each graduating teacher develops a professional poster which they present at a reception hosted by a local business.  They also create a single-page handout to share with attendees at this reception.
