STEM Educator Support and Resources

MSU Denver STEM teaching staff, partners, and student researchers are available to assist K12 educators in the development and instruction of STEM topics for their classrooms. Our focus is on broadening access to STEM pathways for students and families who are underrepresented in STEM opportunities. The emphasis is on hands-on learner-centered activities, science-based cross-disciplinary learning, including ample time for small group discussion and collaborative planning, and a focus on depth over breadth. Utilize the resources on this page; or request an onsite STEM workshop, STEM classroom speaker, or instructional development assistance.

Multi STEM K12 STEM Educator Professional Development

The Multi STEM approach to K12 STEM educator professional development was a product of design-based implementation research with funding from a National Science Foundation (NSF) ITEST grant #1615193. The aim of Multi’s approach is promoting STEM equity pedagogies that cultivate teacher and student competence and confidence in doing authentic science.

The Multi STEM team implemented a series of Summer Institute professional development opportunities for educators. In these workshops the team worked with Participant Observers, and Teacher Leaders in the development of teachers’ social capital; the mutual exchange of knowledge; the production of meaning through collaborative inquiry; and techniques to modify programs based on professional learning outcomes. The bottom-up nature of Multi STEM Summer Institutes demonstrated the transformative potential for understanding and advancing inclusive STEM teaching and learning practices that improve teacher effectiveness and persistence.

Here are Summer Institute resources, agendas, and other useful tools developed for educators. Also view the padlets and additional resources for educators on this website.
