This video highlights the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program at Molloy College and strategies to address the critical need for preparing highly effective secondary teachers. The major goals of the Noyce Ambassadors Program are to create a greater interest on campus for STEM education and to provide the academic and financial supports to potential teaching candidates. The program works in partnership with local community colleges and offers a boot camp as well as a one-on-one summer mentoring internship with master STEM teachers from local high needs schools.

    Thank you, Dr. Patterson! We appreciate all of you support. Please help us keep the conversation going...what instructional skills do you believe teacher candidates need most in today's world?

    That's a great question, Dr. Cohan! Today's educators wear several hats. While many might say tech-savvy is essential, and I'd agree, I believe that one of the most critical things teacher candidates can do is “hold a space” within instruction for authentic conversations with their students. In fostering conversations among youngsters, we allow them to question and contribute to expanding their learning. In turn, this teaches youngsters to enter learning with an openness to truly hear opposing views and new ideas. Those new ideas may inspire them to the innovative practices needed in our world today and beyond.

    Very well said, Dr. Patterson.  There is so much good that could come from a conversation.  As students discuss and question the content presented to them, they will build learn about each other and build positive relationships with each other and their teachers. Positive relationships are the hallmark of an effective education!

    Our program emphasizes practical experiences in high needs schools. Within our courses, these future teachers focus on differentiation of instruction as the tool to meet the needs of a diverse set of learners. A large focus on literacy across all subject areas rounds out their skillset.

    Thank you! Our Noyce Ambassadors participate in a 60-hour paid summer internship at Molloy's field station. The Center for Environmental Research and Coastal Ocean Monitoring (CERCOM) offers opportunities for scientific research and hands-on fieldwork. Our Ambassadors interact with a Master teacher on a one-on-one basis and this collaboration helps the students become prepared for effective lesson planning. There is a focus on standards within one of three disciplines (math, biology, and earth science). Situated on the Great South Bay in New York, the Center also runs a Horseshoe Crab breeding program. The goal of the summer internship is to meet the needs of adolescents in high needs schools. Best strategies for teaching diverse students are presented each summer. These strategies include making lessons comprehensible and engaging, understanding diverse learning preferences, methods to accelerate learning, and creating motivating student-centered activities. In addition, a workshop is given each year on best strategies for multilingual learners. Noyce Ambassadors meet in a small group on a monthly basis with the principal investigator (PI).

    This is a great opportunity for future teachers. I like how they are not just practicing science but thinking about how to use these experiences in their classroom.

    Is this something that future Noyce Scholars will be able to build on?

    Thank you for your comment! We hope that we have engaged our students so that they internalize what they have learned and build on their knowledge and skills as in-service teachers.

    Thank you for this presentation. How are you measuring the goals of the program? If I understand correctly, the boot camp works to to enhance science and math content learning/research skill development and teaching/pedagogical skill. There was also mention of recruitment into teaching. Do you have any findings yet (I know it may be a new project). Thanks again it looks like a great program!

    Hi Ann, These are great questions. 1. We are measuring the goals of the program in typical ways: # of graduates; # of awards as compared to target; # of community college transfers; # of bilingual and underrepresented students; # of first-gen students; GPAs upon graduation; field experiences; passing of certification exams etc. This year we also surveyed all professors (education, gen ed., major) who had a Noyce Ambassador in their class.

    2. Your description of the boot camp is perfect! The boot camp gives prospective teachers an opportunity to "see' what the teaching profession can be like and the types of pedagogical activities available at the secondary level. This is very compelling for students who may have never considered teaching as a career. We would like more of our boot campers to become Noyce Ambassadors.

    I am truly honored to work with Molloy's outstanding faculty and administration to offer meaningful experiences to our Noyce Ambassadors.  Our Noyce Ambassadors are truly some of the most talented, engaged, and enthusiastic students with which I have had the pleasure to work.  

    Facilitating the boot camp with Jodi Evans is an amazing experience.  Students get a little bit of everything they need as they enter the program and transition to the field.  From research skills to teaching strategies, boot campers experience it all!

    Perhaps one of my fondest memories is when Noyce Ambassadors volunteered their time to offer STEM challenges to local elementary students at a STEM Night for students and their families.  Our Noyce Ambassadors planned and presented STEM challenges. They engaged with students encouraging them and challenging them as they acted as the guide on the side for students as they attempted to meet the challenges presented.  Our Noyce Ambassadors have many opportunities to learn the skills needed to be effective teachers and positively impact their future students.  

    I have worked with many of our Noyce Ambassadors and can honestly say they are thoughtful, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic.    Their future students will benefit from their expertise and dedication to building strong, positive relationships with their students.

    I'm impressed by the relationship with CERCOM--such a great resource to have as part of your institution. I'm also wondering: Do the Ambassadors engage (as part of the Noyce project) with CERCOM beyond the paid summer internship?

    Thank you for your interest in our program. Yes, the Noyce Ambassadors engage in activities (some are course related) at CERCOM since several are earth science majors. The students who attend the boot camp take a boat ride there as part of their experience and we hold science events there as well.
