Student Development Funding Supports Student's Conference Presentation
EdD Curriculum & Instruction student Jenna Carlson presented at the Association for Science Teacher Educators (ASTE) conference this past January. Her presentation focused on science museums as intentional partners in teacher preparation. She shared our teacher candidate’s experiences with science in museums during their preparation and how the experience has influenced the way they think about museums as partners in education. Jenna received funding from the Student Development Committee (SDC) to attend the conference. “The opportunity has allowed me the experience of presenting my research at national conferences and the opportunity to network with other professionals in the field. Attendance at these conferences has also helped me learn more about current issues in teacher education.” For more information on the School of Education’s SDC, please visit the SDC website.
