The goal of the three-year Science, Technology, and Engineering Leadership Program (STELP), a grant funded by Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), is to improve instruction in science, technology, and engineering and, in turn, help students achieve full literacy in these areas. This evaluation report addresses the third year of STELP. The focus of this evaluation was on implementation of the program in terms of continued training of a cadre of teacher leaders to further develop and refine online professional development products for other MCPS science, technology, and engineering (STE) educators to view.
Continue to: a) promote and explore additional ways and formats to ensure the widespread and effective use of the online products; and b) explore additional ways in which the online products may be used by resource teachers. Include examples of how they can share with their staff and effectively use them in their staff meetings and professional development.Elicit user feedback on the quality and usefulness of the online products so that modifications can be made to address concerns or problems.Encourage user feedback on the ways that educators are using the online products so that best practices can be shared.
