2015 Noyce Northeast Regional Conference

Successful Teaching in High-Need Schools

Thursday, March 26 - Saturday, March 28, 2015

Cambridge, MA


On behalf of Drexel University, SUNY Cortland, and the University of Massachusetts Boston, we are pleased to host the 4th annual Noyce Northeast Regional Conference. This conference will bring together PIs, Noyce pre-service Scholars, and Noyce in-service Scholars (teachers) from the Noyce Programs in the Northeast region to meet, network, and share ideas and best practices pertinent to teaching in high-need schools. The conference is a great professional development opportunity, including relevant speakers and informative workshops on topics such as classroom management, technology, and model lessons/activities. There will always be opportunities to network and meet fellow Scholars and teachers.

Funding is available for two PIs/Co-PIs/project staff and two Noyce pre-service/in-service Scholars. The grant will pay for travel and hotel costs associated with the conference. The invitation is being sent to all active programs in CT, DE, MD, ME, MA, NH, NJ, NY, PA, RI, and VT.
