Third Annual Rochester Educator Collaboration Event

Collaborating for Continuous Improvement in STEM Education

Dynalon Labware Product Manager Steve Yudicky will be attending the Third Annual Rochester Educator Collaboration Event on Tuesday October 6th from 7:30 am to 4 pm at the Rochester Museum & Science Center.

This interactive event is for educators (kindergarten through college) who are interested in improving math and science learning at all levels. The purpose of the Collaboration Event is to enable networking among diverse Rochester area educators and to facilitate ongoing collaboration.

During this event you will:

Hear keynote speaker Dr. James Stigler, co-author of The Teaching Gap and The Learning Gap, and Director of the TIMSS Video Study.

Share with other K-16 educators as we collaborate for continual improvement of STEM education utilizing the tools of observation, analysis, discussion and reflection.

Learn about a variety of successful approaches to collaborating with your peers toward the continuous improvement of your own teaching practice.

Participate in a classroom observation provided by the Children’s School of Rochester, a book discussion and video study with Dr. James Stigler, or an interactive workshop on developing productive Professional Learning Communities.

Celebrate the success of your peers as we recognize the finalists of the 2009 Excellence in STEM Teaching Award, and announce the winner of the Ward’s Natural Science $10,000 Classroom Makeover.
