Mission: • Recruit - Increase enrollment for the next generation of math and science teachers in Kentucky. • Prepare - Develop outstanding teachers to improve math and science education in Kentucky. • Support - Offer mentoring throughout the program and continued support after graduation. • Outreach - Provide opportunities to local educators by promoting math and science in the community.
Western Kentucky University Statistics • WKU’s Main Campus has 21,000 students • An additional 12,000 students attend WKU from one of three regional campuses • Glasgow is WKU only • Owensboro and Elizabethtown also have community colleges that operate at their sites Owensboro Elizabethtown Glasgow
SKyTeach Growth & Expansion • Enrollment increased from 29 students to 250+ in 6 years • Approximately 30 of our 250 SKyTeach students attend at the regional campuses • Replicating replication is quite a challenge! • Regional Campus Expansion • 3 campuses • Glasgow 30 miles • E’town 75 miles • Owensboro 80 miles Fall 2012 enrollment Owensboro 2,422 Elizabethtown2,709 Glasgow 6,826
SKyTeach at the Regional Campuses • SKyTeach began offering courses at the regional campuses in fall 2012 • Considerations • Format adjustments, face-to-face delivery versus Interactive Video Services (IVS) • Course catalog numbering for non-compete with community colleges • Training and hiring of staff familiar with Uteach ideals • Distance learning=Distance supervision of staff • Supplies • Development of new contacts in schools for field placements • SKyTeach “identity” with students at the regional campuses • Developing relationships with regional campus staff
SKyTeach Growth & Expansion Next Steps • Planning a WKU-KCTC partnership beginning in spring 2015 @ KCTCS in Somerset, KY • KCTCS-Kentucky Community and Technical Colleges • 8 locations throughout Kentucky and 1 in Tennessee Western Kentucky, Hopkinsville, Madisonville, Owensboro, Elizabethtown, Southcentral KY, Somerset, Henderson, and Volunteer State Community College (TN)
SKyTeach Growth & Expansion Next Steps • Students will be able to complete a middle grades mathematics or a middle grades science curriculum in residence at the partner institutions. Approved community college faculty may teach courses in the content area curriculum Western Kentucky, Hopkinsville, Madisonville, Owensboro, Elizabethtown, Southcentral KY, Somerset, Henderson, and Volunteer State Community College (TN)
SKyTeach Growth & Expansion Considerations • Use of retired STEM teachers to supervise field experiences • Use of adjunct faculty to teach SKyTeach/Uteach courses • Development of relationships with local schools for student field experiences • Use of Interactive Video Services for course delivery • Maintaining fidelity

2007UKanTeach Established UKanTeach’smission is to recruit, prepare, and retain qualified STEM teachers.
UKanTeach Goals Attract and retain more students in 6-12 science and math education career paths who: a) are masters of their discipline, b) use technology effectively to enhance learning, c) understand and involve students in scientific inquiry Give students early classroom teaching experience, often Provide social, academic, and financial support, so students have every opportunity to be successful Build partnerships with schools to help support and retain highly qualified teachers
KU Edwards campus BEST Building 12604 Quivira Road Overland Park, Kansas (913) 897 - 8441 UKanTeach Locations KU Lawrence campus Dole Human Development Center (DHDC) 1000 Sunnyside Avenue Lawrence, Kansas 66045 (785) 864 - 4471 KU / Johnson County Community College (JCCC) Approaches to Teaching I & II at JCCC (through an Articulation Agreement)
Fall 2008Listening to the concerns ofCommunity College Transfers Transfer students were often frustrated that their community college courses were not always accepted for university credit Those that did try to plan ahead often couldn’t find the “right” contact, and regularly got “the runaround” trying to find the answers to credit and planning questions Additionally…… Transfer students tended to be lower income students on needs-based scholarships, lacking the confidence and skills to find and insist on the support they needed.
10.10.2008KU Community College Forum UKanTeach: Exploring an articulation agreement School of Business: 2+2 Articulation Agreement with JCCC School of Social Welfare: 2+2 MOU with KCKCC School of Ed: struggling students take gen ed classes at JCCC KU Edwards: KU/JCCC/KCKCC collaboration, Metro tuition rate Office of Admissions: help with unofficial 2+2 agreements, difficult to keep all transfer guides updated CLAS Student Academic Services: yearly transfer guide updates Provost Office: desire to increase Hispanic enrollment
Primary Concerns heard fromCommunity Colleges UKanTeach:CC want a seamless and successful movement toward universities CC want to feel valued and respected as part of the students’ educational experience. School of Business:CC would like specific university transfer contacts School of Social Welfare:CC want up-to-date advising so that courses transfer School of Education:CC want to keep students through AA degree, but with guaranteed transfer credits Edwards Campus: CC are concerned about new requirements of programs/majors. CC want a dedicated transfer site at KU (one stop shop for transfer guides, scholarships) CC want more transfer scholarships (huge tuition shift from CC to university) CC want more bachelor degree completion programs at KU Edwards Office of Admissions:CC want questions answered without “the runaround” CC want easily accessible info that they can trust CC want to know who to contact for what CC want to know how former students are doing (were they prepared?) CC want to know why courses aren’t transferable (to change them so they are) CC want input on awarding of scholarships and respect from the university CLAS Student Academic Services:want clear 2+2 plans to avoid transfer problems
Community College response from Articulation Agreement Jeff Frost, dean of mathematics at JCCC, said the program is good not only for students who already know they want to teach, but also those who appreciated the chance to explore that career. “I think a lot of our students and peer tutors haven’t considered teaching until they start doing that kind of work and realize ‘I could see myself doing this,’” Frost said. “I think any time we can work together it’s a great way to show the community we’re all interested in students’ success.”
KU & JCCCThe First Years 2010 - 2012: Beth Edmonds, JCCC math faculty + Georgia Smith, Master Teacher Beth was very excited about the program, attended a UTeach annual conference, promoted the program Beth taught Step 1 on a course overload schedule, without much science division support, and without much marketing of the class (no one knew about the opportunity) Class sizes became so small, they weren’t feasible, and JCCC stopped offering the Step 1 course.
KU & JCCCNow: The Second Time Around 2014: Katrina Rothrock JCCC Adjunct Faculty & KU UKanTeach Master Teacher JCCC Step 1 students with KU (Edwards) Step 1 students Large marketing efforts by UKanTeach at both KU and JCCC Step 2 course proposed at JCCC for Spring 2015 implementation to help with continuity of pathway
Benefits for bothKU & JCCC Added career path opportunity for JCCC students: gives potential to increase JCCC enrollment numbers JCCC is not paying for the faculty at this time… but this is a pathway to KU With the articulation agreement, students are certain of what classes will be accepted toward their degree at KU. The KU Edwards campus allows for more local classes, longer. Local schools in Kansas City area are very excited to have UKanTeach as part of their classrooms. With more marketing support from KU, there is more awareness and faculty support at JCCC
Challenges For Students: At JCCC, many students are a long way from the academic level necessary to begin a math/science degree Only Step 1 now, soon only Step 1&2 – but not an organized 2+2 Pre-requisites: desire to increase diversity and access to the program, but pre-requisites discourage this For Instructors: No designated classroom or storage room (My office is the supply room, and I pack the bins) 2 Learning Management Systems (need a 3rd party dropbox) JCCC faculty interactions are critical For the Program: KU is providing teacher, observer, supplies Constant recruiting required for sustainability
The Future We hope the added pathway increases the program enrollment, and therefore more teacher development for Kansas With added program awareness, we hope to make the program self-sustaining at JCCC We plan to offer more courses for the program at the KU Edwards campus, creating a more complete local program for the students who start at the community college
