        from APLU Added 343 1 0

        On October 13, 2011, APLU released the "Discussion Paper on Common Core State Standards and Teacher Preparation: The Role of Higher Education." In addition, we unveiled a new partnership to prepare mathematics teachers for the common core state standards, an effort funded in part by the NSF. SPEAKERS: W. Gary Martin, Leischuck Distinguished Professor, Mathematics Education, Auburn University Stephen Pruitt, Vice President, Content, Research and Development, Achieve Nancy Shapiro, Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, University System of Maryland Suzanne Wilson, University Distinguished Professor and Chairperson, Teacher Education, Michigan State University MODERATOR: Howard Gobstein, Co-director of the Science and Mathematics Teacher Imperative; Executive Vice President, APLU DISCUSSANT: Charles Coble, Co-director of the Science and Mathematics Teacher Imperative; Founding Partner of the Third Mile Group; Founding Partner of Teacher Preparation Analytics The common core state standards for mathematics and recently released science framework provide an opportunity to improve K-12 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. However, a significant challenge to successful implementation and fulfillment of this potential is having a teacher workforce prepared to teach to these higher standards. APLU's Science and Mathematics Teacher Imperative (SMTI) is convening this panel to discuss how higher education can help meet this challenge. The Science and Mathematics Teacher Imperative (SMTI) is an initiative of A۰P۰L۰U and the nation’s public research universities to transform middle and high school science, technology, engineering and mathematics education by preparing a new generation of world-class science and mathematics teachers.

                  • Moving to BPI€™s 1100 Home Energy Auditing Standard | August 20, 2014


                    from CLEAResult Tech Added 24 0 0

                    Informational webinar led by Mark Hutchins, Quality Assurance Manager at CSG. The purpose of this 90-minute webinar is to walk through each section of BPI-1100-T-201x (also known as the “Home Energy Auditing Standard”) to examine how they differ from the previous training standards. Because BPI 1100 only covers “what to do” as opposed to “how to do it,” Mark will also provide a preview of what to expect from BPI-1200-S-201x or “Standard Practice for Basic Analysis of Buildings.”

                      February 27, 2014 Event-related resources (e.g., PDF of presentation, etc.): https://wested.box.com/s/am8dns8rax7arsdhfdbh In this archived webinar, an overview of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and key changes from previous standards is presented. Highlights include examples from K-12 classrooms implementing change in response to the NGSS, science preparation in the CSU system, and course requirements and content for the future. Incorporating engineering and literacy skills into the science classroom are some of the biggest concerns we have heard from K-12 teachers about NGSS, so the panelists focus on how to make the connections with engineering/literacy in CSU classes as potential examples for K-12. . This webinar is aimed at a broad group of stakeholders in education—university faculty, district administrators, STEM coordinators, curriculum specialists, and instructional leaders—and was co-hosted by the CSU Chancellor's Office.
