Participants will learn how Austin College integrated leadership development into STEM and education course content and self-reflection. Using the AACU VALUE Rubrics, students and faculty are able to evaluate leadership in internships and student placements to further their own self-awareness. Participants should leave the session with an understanding of how to use the AACU VALUE Rubrics for research and evaluation.
The evidence we will present is content activities (the how to part) and qualitative analysis of reflections to understand participants growth. Two Noyce Scholars who have participated in the leadership development actives will be part of the presentation to share their experiences.
In this interactive presentation, we will share how the Austin College STEM Education Leadership Scholars Program (ACSELS) program uses select American Association of Colleges and Universities (AACU) VALUE Rubrics as a framework for pre-service teacher leadership development. The presentation will focus on how the rubrics are used by Noyce scholars, Noyce summer interns, and students in the STEM in the Schools January term course to evaluate themselves and others on leadership behaviors such as communicating ideas, teamwork, and problem solving. The presentation will include a discussion of the definition of leadership, how the rubrics characterize leadership behaviors, and how faculty and scholars use the rubrics as a tool to guide observations and self-reflections for leadership development. Presenters will share specific leadership development activities for STEM content courses and reflective prompts for both STEM content and education courses. The presentation will conclude with how the investigators are currently using the rubrics for research and assessment of program goals
