Our Mission

The Department of Science/Mathematics Education strives to have a positive and lasting impact on the quality of STEM education in North Texas and beyond. Our approach is to recruit, prepare and support excellent STEM educators and to guide PK-16 and higher students toward success in formal and informal STEM educational experiences.

Our mission is accomplished through a mixture of academic programs that include teacher preparation and enhancement, high-quality content-rich professional development for teachers and educational leaders, educational outreach, partnerships within UT Dallas and the broader educational community, and active research and creative activity in STEM and STEM teaching and learning.

 

Academic Programs

The academic programs of UTeach Dallas and the Master of Arts in Teaching Programs in Science Education and Mathematics Education seek to recruit and nurture outstanding STEM teachers with strong content knowledge, research-based teaching and communications skills and leadership ability.

 

Professional Development

The UT Dallas Texas Regional Collaborative for Excellence in Science Teaching and Excellence in Mathematics Teaching is seeking teams in upper elementary through high school STAAR/EOC tested
grade levels (5th grade science, 8th grade science, biology, and mathematics grades 5-8 and Algebra I) to join our dynamic program for the 2017-2018 year!  Science content will focus on Matter and Energy. Mathematics focus will be on algebraic and proportional reasoning for all grades. The computer science (CS) focus for the UTD TRC (March – July 2017) is on preparing teachers to teach computer science (grades 8–12) and prepare for the certification exam. Other activities may include preparing teachers to offer CS camps or clubs on their campuses.

Outreach
