Event description

Description

A cornerstone of TGR Foundation’s professional development offerings, STEM Studio convenes educators from the U.S. and across the globe to learn how to incorporate inquiry-based learning into their classrooms.

This summer is no different! We will be bringing the same dynamic cross-collaboration and community support integral to STEM Studio to educators in a virtual format.

With a mix of digital interaction and collaboration, individual self-study and share outs, four engaging sessions of Virtual STEM Studio will be offered throughout the summer. Each session is three days long and will prepare educators to adopt inquiry as a teaching method in their classrooms, with a heightened focus on using inquiry in distance teaching.

Each session is three days long and will prepare educators to adopt inquiry as a teaching method in their classrooms - a special consideration to using inquiry in remote teaching will also be included.

A sample schedule for Virtual STEM Studio is below:

By the end of these three days, participants will have a plan for how they can bring what they learned about inquiry back to their school and have a schedule of monthly skill building / check-in opportunities with TGR Foundation which they can utilize to enact this plan throughout the 2020 -2021 school year.
