ITEN Project Teams: 14 Institutions Collaborate Across 10 OAS Member States

28 June 2019

ITEN is pleased to announce the 2019 Project Teams.

Project Teams are collaborative groups formed by two or more Ministries of Education or other educational agencies that are committed to identifying, testing, or implementing a new or modified solution to a shared problem of policy or practice in STEM teacher education. These groups include representative from the leading institutions (policymakers), teacher educators (individuals who prepare STEM teachers), and practicing classroom STEM teachers.

Over the course of six months, Project Teams work together on a project that addresses one or more challenges underlying STEM teacher education. The projects are supportive of each Ministry's or institution's core work, and are executed in a way that the rest of the network can learn from and build upon what is produced by each Project Team.

Projects underway include the development of an international mentoring program for STEM teachers, creation of model lessons for STEM in early childhood, and the development of professional development frameworks and manuals for train-the-trainer experiences.

Members from all Project Teams will come together August 21 and 22 in Lima, Peru to meet face-to-face with their international counterparts, share out their work, and receive feedback from the network. Project Team products will be showcased digitally in late 2019.

Project teams are composed of institutions from the following countries. As Project Teams develop and evolve, additional information will be shared.
