Peer Instructor or College Faculty - Who is Better for Leading Teacher Professional Development? (Evaluation)


"The University of Cincinnati is beginning its 4th year of an NSF Math and Science Partnership (MSP) Grant. Two of the program's primary goals are:
  1. Improve 7-12 science and mathematics achievement to prepare for and increase interest in the college study of engineering or other STEM fields.
  2. Develop mathematics and science teacher knowledge of engineering and the engineering design process and challenge-based instruction process through explicit training and classroom implementation support.
In addition to improving math and science teaching, the program also seeks to develop a community of teachers who will implement an explicit and authentic articulation of engineering in 7th-12th grade math and science classrooms so that these teachers will effectively enable students to understand engineering design and consider careers in engineering fields."
