The Science & Health Education Partnership at University of California, San Francisco and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) are pleased to announce the first International Teacher-Scientist Partnership Conference. The conference, funded by the National Science Foundation (Grant DUE-1247936), will be held February 13-14, 2013, in Boston, MA, just before the annual AAAS meeting.
This conference is designed for anyone involved or interested in teacher-scientist partnerships, such as teachers, scientists, engineers, partnership program coordinators/specialists, administrators, and evaluators. The program will include sessions of interest to both new and experienced stakeholders in the field and will include a mix of keynote speakers, panel sessions, workshops, and networking time. Conference topics will include: partnership models, getting started in partnerships, recruitment, evaluation, dissemination, and more. Join others from around the world for two days of discussions, workshops, and presentations as we build community and share expertise in this rapidly growing field.
