We loved the 2016 UTeach Conference!
The 10th annual UTeach Conference was held May 24–26, 2016, at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin. Here are some of the most awesome points.
A fabulous opening plenary on Computer Science for All, with Quincy Brown, Gail Chapman, Deborah Kariuki, and Carol Fletcher. Good conversation and great audience questions.
73 conference sessions covering the UTeach model, course overviews and innovative lessons, research on UTeach and STEM education, and student recruitment, retention, and support.
Enthusiastic student poster presentations.
Awesome musical entertainment at the reception by Brand New Key, featuring two UTeach Institute staffers.
A keynote speech full of connections, by UTeach Executive Director Michael Marder.
On-camera interviews! Why do you teach? #WhyITeach
A screening of the film Most Likely to Succeed, plus a panel discussion with teachers from project-based high schools and an inspirational closing plenary talk by Chris Lehmann, founding principal of Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia.
We're looking forward to seeing you next May!
