Leading by Example for Engineering Design (LEED), is a Math/Science Partnership bringing together teachers from 5 metropolitan OKC school districts, the University of Central Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Energy Resources Board, and Pearson to increase STEM content understanding and pedagogy expertise.
LEED partnership teachers have been actively involved in STEM training and instructional design through this past fall which culminates in the LEED CONFERENCE ON ENGINEERING DESIGN.
IMSTREMS 2.o IS WORKING WITH THE LEED PROJECT ON THE CONFERENCE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL OKLAHOMA AND IT WILL BE THE LOCATION OF OUR THIRD IMSTREMS 2.0 FOLLOW-UP.
YOU ARE INVITED TO NOT ONLY ATTEND, BUT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE LEED CONFERENCE
The LEED Conference is focused toward Engineering Design, but application of Engineering Design from a variety of science and math will be explored and showcased. In fact, the whole premise is to train teacher-leaders in the Engineering Design Cross-cutting ideas that are a part of the Next Generation Science Standards (and the prospective OASS standards) and are to be infused into all science courses.
So with an eye on building for the future, the LEED Conference will help you and other teacher-leaders to jump-start the transition to the new standards-based instructional design.
