Description:
The following message was sent in July to get a sense of who would be willing to attend a pre-LNC conference meeting for the Institute projects. At that time, we did not get many responses. As many of you have begun registering, we are asking that you please let us know whether or not you wish to attend so that we may plan accordingly. Please respond to Mahogany Hopkins (mhopkins@nsf.gov) and/or Joyce Evans (jevans@nsf.gov).

Dear Colleagues:

Given the special nature and focus of Teacher Institutes, two years ago at the Learning Network Conference a group of Teacher Institute faculty and staff met to discuss their experiences and the challenges they were facing in offering an Institute program for teachers. There are now a total of 12 Teacher Institutes and there has been a discussion about holding a follow-up to the first meeting as a pre-conference workshop (solely for Institute projects) on Sunday, January 27th from 4pm to 7pm.

Suggestions of topics for discussion include:

(1) Curriculum development strategies and achievements including the role of technology

(2) Strategies and achievements for recruitment of participants including their funding and academic degrees

(3) Strategies and achievements for continuation of partnership efforts after the life of the grant

(4) Ideas and platforms for sharing between the partnerships

We should spend 45 min discussing and exchanging for each of the topics. We would also appreciate suggestions for alternate/additional topics.

If you have not already done so, it would be helpful if you could provide the number of individuals in your project that you anticipate would like to attend. (email mhopkins@nsf.gov)

The meeting location and agenda will be posted in January.
