Diversifying the STEM Teacher Pipeline Virtual Conference
- October 27 2-4:30pm ET
One of our 2020 Project Teams, Diversifying the STEM Teacher Pipeline, will be hosting a virtual conference, Diversifying the STEM Teacher Pipeline: Using an Equity Lens to Address Marketing, Financial, and Selection Challenges to provide an opportunity for organizations committed to teacher recruitment, preparation, and retention to come together and exchange ideas.
The event will feature opening remarks by Dr. Roy Jones of Clemson University’s Call Me MISTER® Program, followed by equity-focused sessions led by field experts in three focus areas: marketing, financial challenges, and biases in recruitment and selection.
100Kin10 Network Impact Survey
- October 14–29
It’s hard to believe that we’re already at the end of 2020 and heading towards the final year of our initial ten-year goal. As we look to 2021 and beyond, we are eager to celebrate all that we have accomplished together by telling the stories of your many achievements and painting the picture of the network’s shared success.
We are hoping that you’ll consider spending five minutes telling us how being a part of 100Kin10 has impacted your organization’s STEM teaching and learning work. Your responses to this survey will help us share how the network has changed your work — and ultimately, benefited students and teachers across the country.
Help determine our next shared moonshot goal
- Join a virtual conversation to share your thoughts and reactions on suggestions for our next moonshot goal that will bring us closer to ending the STEM teacher shortage.
- February 12 3:00pm to 4:00pm ET
100Kin10 launched with a decade-long moonshot goal of preparing 100,000 excellent STEM teachers by 2021. With just over two years remaining, we are on track to reach — and exceed — our shared goal on time. But we know that ending the STEM teacher shortage will take us beyond our original 100,000 goal. For this reason, we are now planning for what comes next after we reach the 100,000 goal in 2021, starting with the question: What should be our next, bold moonshot goal that we aim for together and that brings us closer to ending the STEM teacher shortage? Building on the ideas we’ve heard from the network and data about the current state of the STEM teacher shortage, we have compiled suggestions for the next moonshot goal. Please join us for a virtual conversation to hear brief updates, explore the moonshot suggestions more deeply, and help shape the future of 100Kin10.
Presentation of “School Scheduling for Teacher Collaboration” Landscape Scan
- January 22 2 pm ET
We’re committed to ensuring that partners working on the catalysts related to nurturing positive work environment for teachers in schools are using and building on the solutions, ideas, and research that already exist in the system. A question that continues to emerge across the network is how to modify school schedules to allow for teacher collaboration during the school day. To support partners working on this catalyst we are consolidating existing research and best practices from across the network and field. Join us for a webinar presentation on this research on January 22 at 2pm ET!
Share Your Ideas for our Next Moonshot Goal
- Join us for a virtual conversation on December 11th to share what would inspire you to keep working on the STEM teacher shortage in the coming years.
- December 11 1:00pm to 2:00pm ET
100Kin10 launched with a decade-long moonshot goal of preparing 100,000 excellent STEM teachers by 2021. With just over two years remaining, we are on track to reach — and exceed — our shared goal on time.
But we know that ending the STEM teacher shortage will take us beyond our original 100,000 goal. This understanding is what prompted us to map the Grand Challenges underlying the STEM teacher shortage and to begin to tackle these systemic challenges as a network.
We are now beginning to plan for what comes next after we reach the 100,000 goal in 2021. We are starting with the question: What should be our next, bold moonshot goal that brings us toward ending the STEM teacher shortage and that we aim for together?
We want to hear your ideas! Join us for a conversation on December 11 at 1pm ET to share what would inspire you to keep working on the STEM teacher shortage in the coming years.
Join the Rural STEM Micro-Network
- April 16
The Rural STEM Micro-Network is a group for 100Kin10 partners and allies to share resources, find collaboration partners, and seek advice on challenges they face while working to support rural STEM teachers and students. There will be regular conference calls with topics of interest identified by participants, in-person meetings, and a listserv where members can connect and exchange knowledge.
