Teacher Professional Development Day

The Long Island STEM Hub is excited to announce a Long Island Teacher Professional Development Day to be held on November 6th, 2018 as part of the Hub’s goal to bring industry and education together. This region-wide initiative provides a variety of opportunities for educators to meet Long Island business leaders in their industry settings, tour their facilities, and learn about the broad spectrum of career paths and the skills and education needed for employment in Long Island’s high tech companies. Educators will also explore how to integrate this information with their academic content to bring greater relevance and an interest in high tech careers to the classroom. Introducing our educators to the industry partners in science, healthcare, engineering, manufacturing, aerospace, information technology and more is an important step in our regional collaboration focused on promoting student interest in STEM fields, building business and academia networks that facilitate interaction, and preparing our next generation high tech workforce.

Anticipated Outcomes

Teachers influence a multitude of students, our future workforce, on a daily basis. Many teachers have had limited opportunities to gain industry experience making it difficult to connect curriculum to applications in a business setting. Teachers will:

  • Gain a greater awareness of the high tech, high growth industries on Long Island and increase career awareness to support integration into their classroom content
  • Develop relationships between teachers and industry partners for continued interactions and resources as well as sharing challenges and opportunities
  • Share ideas about creating project-based curriculum with relevant industry examples which can have a positive impact upon student learning
  • Have the opportunity to join the STEM Hub Regional Industry Council’s to facilitate further collaboration with industry partners
