STEM Teacher Preparation at the University of Houston: Learning Through Info...

NSF Awards: 1240083, 1557309, 1644191

2019 (see original presentation & discussion)


This video emphasizes the value of three NSF funded scholarship programs that foster female participation in STEM.  This includes: two Robert Noyce Scholarship programs; Recruitment, Preparation and Retention of STEM Students as High school Teachers and STEM Teacher Preparation: Learning through Informal and Formal Experiences; and one S-STEM Program; Promotion and Retention of STEM Education through Networking Team. These programs promote student enrollment in STEM majors while providing access, self-discovery, and career advancement, particularly for female students, to STEM fields. This video highlights the experiences of three female participants and the impact of the scholarship programs on their lives and studies.  Their stories, lived and told, relived and retold, revealed common themes related to the influence of teachers, professors, inquiry-based teaching and learning, culturally responsive pedagogy, and informal learning experiences.   This glimpse into their experiences is evidence of how participation in scholarship programs can lead to changes in students’ attitudes toward life and learning.   Overall, the program participants expressed that they were better prepared for their future and looked forward to a career related to a STEM field.
