2007 GSA Denver Paper # 202-10 Professional Development for the Professional Developers: Aspects of Effective Teacher Professional Development Programs in the Earth Sciences

slide2
How can a professional development program be designed to address the multiple and varied needs of teachers of Earth Science? It …
  • Should be based on combination of science content and practical classroom applications
  • Should provide combination of “live” and Internet-based resources
  • Should foster scientist-teacher interactions
  • Should enable “master teachers” to mentor less experienced colleagues
  • Should stimulate additional learning opportunities

evaluation
Evaluation
  • Feedback from participants & E2C Team
  • External evaluations by Dr. J. Ebert and Dr. P. Solomon
  • Overwhelmingly positive about increase in content knowledge, empowerment about interactions with researchers, usefulness of web-based resources for teacher and student use, and much more
evaluation weaknesses
Evaluation -- Weaknesses
  • Attending Saturday workshops in Palisades, NY
  • Changes in professional and personal demands over the years
  • Financial and institutional support
  • Largest question about duplicability: facilitating teacher
