The workshop focuses on the best practices in role model engagement and will be facilitated by a leader in the field, Techbridge, out of Silicon Valley. My goal is to have a FULL house, so we can get the tools provided in as many tool boxes as possible. The training is underwritten by Techbridge and NSF, allowing it to be FREE to UM participants and the institution. Techbridge regularly work with leaders in the field. Here’s a link from the Huffington Post on their work: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/techbridge-girls/role-models-matter-and-so.... They generally focus on girls and STEM, but to meet our unique needs they’re broadening their lens to all K-12 learners and higher education disciplines.
TECHBRIDGE “ROLE MODELS MATTER” WORKSHOP –Phyllis J. Washington Education Center, Room 123, April 24, 2015, 9:00 am-noon
A national leader in informal science education from Silicon Valley, Techbridge inspires K-12 learners to discover their passion for STEM and related career pathways. In this FREE workshop designed to prepare professionals for outreach, Techbridge will share best practices and resources in role model engagement for faculty from all disciplines. During this three hour workshop, you will gain new tools to weave your research, studies and personal story into a classroom visit, plus much more. An informal planning session will follow from 1-3:00 pm where you can design and refine a K-12 classroom experience with Techbridge. Space is limited and demand is high. Reserve your spot today with Holly Truitt at Holly.Truitt@umontana.edu or 243-4872.
