Lead an Unconference
- An opportunity to connect with and learn from other partners in your area by leading an unconference.
- May 31–June 1
This summer, bring the expertise of the network to your doorstep. We’re inviting a few dedicated partners to lead an ‘unconference’ for partners in their area. Whether cataloging approaches to teacher recruitment or getting feedback on a new idea, these events are opportunities to connect with and learn from other partners – and as lead, you get to make that happen.
RFP: Efficacy of K-8 Science PD Evaluation
- A RFP for an environmental scan and gap analysis of current practices for evaluating the efficacy of K-8 science professional development evaluation.
- May 16–June 23
How might we better measure the impact of K-8 science professional development on improved teaching and/ or increased longevity in the classroom?
We are excited to team up with 100Kin10 partner ExxonMobil to explore this aspect of the fourth grand challenge around effective professional development.
Through this request for proposals, one or more 100Kin10 partner will have the chance to contribute to the field’s understanding of current PD evaluation practices; the efficacy of those practices; and the opportunities that exist for improvement.
Funds of up to $50K will be available to conduct an environmental scan and gap analysis, and to develop a white paper (or equivalent work product) that will be widely disseminated to the network and the field at-large.
