Sandra Adams, PI, Montclair State University Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program Professor
Participants will be able to apply the lessons learned from our MSU Noyce program to their own efforts in the following areas:
1. Recruitment and admission
2. Partnerships with community colleges
3. Scheduling and advisement for Noyce scholars
4. Performance measures (observations of teaching, portfolios, edTPA)
5. Job placement
6. Retention and mentoring
We now have five years of evaluation data from the Center for Research and Evaluation on Education and Human Services to draw upon as evidence for what worked (and what did not) in our program over the span of our program. We also have the associated research data on teacher learning for diversity that has already been presented at AERA and NARST.
In this conversational workshop, Dr. Sandra Adams and Dr. Doug Larkin, both of the Montclair State University Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program will discuss lessons learned over the past six years in managing a program focused on recruiting, preparing, and retaining undergraduates as teachers in a Noyce Track 1 program. To date the Montclair Noyce program has admitted 29 of our proposed 30 scholarship recipients to the program. The substance of the workshop will be on highlighting some of the more everyday aspects of running a Noyce program. We will raise some critical issues that we have encountered along the way, and share what we have learned in our attempts to address them. Participants will be able to apply the lessons learned from our MSU Noyce program to their own efforts in the following areas: recruitment and admission; partnerships with community colleges; partnerships across colleges within the university; running monthly meetings for Noyce scholars; scheduling and advisement for Noyce scholars; performance measures (observations of teaching, portfolios, edTPA); job placement, and retention and mentoring.
This session will be highly interactive, and there will be an opportunity for other Noyce PIs to discuss their own contexts and challenges.
