    Primary Audience

    Higher education science/science education instructors

    We also welcome any professional scientists, informal science professionals, tertiary science instructors, and related industry professionals to join us.

    As our K-12 pre-service and in-service teachers are enhancing their practices to meet the intent of the Kentucky Academic Standards in Science, we need to inform ourselves about how to best support those teachers. While all who support K-12 science educators are welcome, our goal for the Summit is to have representation from each higher education institution across Kentucky as we incorporate interactive features for networking and learning from each other.

    Event Goal: Each higher education institution across Kentucky support a minimum of two attendees: higher ed science instructor and scientist who work with preservice teachers. 

    Sessions will be focused on 3 areas that will include networking time and intentional sharing of resources:

    1.     Three-Dimensional Science Teaching

    2.     Vetted Resources for Standards Implementation

    3.     Science Teacher Recruitment and Retention
