8th Annual UTeach Conference
The 8th annual UTeach Conference will be held in May 20-22, 2014 at the AT&T Center on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin in Austin, TX.
The UTeach Conference is devoted to strengthening secondary STEM teacher preparation and the national UTeach community by sharing information, experiences, and lessons learned. This annual meeting provides valuable opportunities to learn more about the UTeach program and the national UTeach expansion effort. The conference serves a variety of audiences, including teams of co-directors, faculty, master teachers, and student from current UTeach university partners, state policymakers, donors and foundations, universities interested in the current RFP and in future replication, and other interested parties.
The UTeach Conference includes pre-conference workshops, informational sessions on operational and instructional program components, sessions conducted by partner universities sharing promising practices related to implementing UTeach programs, and special interest group meetings and events. The conference welcomes students from UTeach programs across the country and offers a strand of sessions developed especially for them.
