The Institute of the Americas Professional Workshop for STEM Instructors for high school instructors will be held August 13-18, 2018 on the University of California, San Diego campus.

The annual Workshop for STEM Instructors, complementary to the Science and Innovation camp, engages high school instructors in an idea-generating program designed to promote innovative teaching techniques in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

During the five-day workshop, Instructors will have a hands-on laboratory experience and learn applicable teaching methods that make these vitally important subjects exciting and accessible to students. This unique opportunity provides instructors with innovative skill sets to further their professional development in order to instruct throughout their region in new creative ways that will encourage their students to become the next generation of scientists.

The instructors will be asked to develop and a deliver a presentation on new teaching methods and experiments that can be included in their own classrooms, applying what they learn during the workshop alongside the mentorship from UCSD professors and regional college professors. During the workshop, UC San Diego professors and regional college professors will facilitate dialogue throughout the week on ways that science, technology, engineering, and mathematics can lead to an exciting career path for their students.

 

The basic requirements for this program are:

  • Interest in learning and implementing interdisciplinary methodologies in the field of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) at a high school level.
  • Interest in innovative ways to encourage students to become scientific leaders in the 21st century.
  • Have completed (minimum) one year of academic instruction.
  • Currently instruct a STEM-academic course at the high school level for the 2018-2019 academic calendar.
 

Tuition is $3,500 and includes 6 nights’ lodging in La Jolla, three meals a day, local transportation (including San Diego airport pickup and drop off for non-local instructors), field visits, special events, unlimited Wi-Fi, books and laboratory materials, and medical insurance.

 Cost for international instructors is $5,000. Please contact the STEM Team for additional questions.
