UTeach 20th Anniversary
UTeach celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2017, and WVUteach, a replication site at one of 45 Universities nationwide, is going to help celebrate!
To help mark this auspicious occasion, we will be helping UTeach raise awareness of the importance of high-quality secondary STEM education with a variety of celebratory activities during 2016–2017:
- WVUteach students are invited to join UTeach students across the nation by participating in contests to make a video about UTeach and design a UTeach t-shirt.
- We are collecting videos of our faculty and students telling us why they teach:
- Why Co-Director Jeffrey Carver teaches
- Why Master Teacher Vanessa Licwov-Channell teaches
- Why Master Teacher Nancy Spillane teachers
- We are collecting videos of well-known people wishing UTeach a happy birthday.
- During National Teacher Appreciation Week (May 1-5, 2017), WVUteach and WVU President Gee will be going into a local school to teach a STEM lesson.
- Anniversary celebrations will culminate May 23-25, 2017, when WVUteach joins UTeach Nation in Austin, TX, at the 2017 Annual UTeach Conference for three days of learning and networking with teachers,
universities, and funders from across the nation.
