Creating and Increasing Equitable Opportunities through Professional Development in STEM and SEL

Put your mask on first before assisting others.

As many as 67% of teachers report insufficient PD for STEM as a key challenge

SYIS for STEM PD.

We provide STEM professional development (PD), so you can . . .

SYIS reflects our belief and our research that all students can benefit from culturally responsive and contemporary approaches to science or STEM learning. What is more, our research and practice have also shown the potential for increasing behavioral and cognitive engagement in science learning. These foundations allow us to provide impactful professional and program development.

Get beyond

hype about culturally responsive STEM teaching, and get to it

Get your after-school

where your program may be limited by cultural, geographical or other boundaries.

Reliable measures for STEM program effectiveness and quality are essential.

Our Multicultural Students’ Engagement in Science Survey (MSESS by CLEC) measures learner’s types and levels of engagement in science learning.

The  PEAR Institute’s DoS (Dimensions of Success)© Observation Tool, we are certified to use, provides 12 indicators to ensure and sustain high-quality STEM education.

 

 

Using these Tools, we provide training and coaching so you can . . .

Back in the day in the College of Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, we used the language of “developmental assets” for the “soft skills” professional development trainings offered to students to complement their engineering skills.  The outcomes were pervasive and phenomenal. Today, we are certified through The PEAR Institute: Partnerships in Education and Resilience to train others in SEL using their Holistic Student Assessment (HSA)© and the Clover Model© tools.

Using these Tools, we provide training and coaching so you can . . .

A note of gratitude for working with our team.  You have, in a good way, helped us to better understand the PEAR Survey and how we can use the data to guide our RTI action plans.  The data has already begun to drive deeper thinking with regard to how we can better support all of our students.  You have a beautiful way about you that I can clearly see is bring “on” and “bring out” thoughts and ideas from all team members that will drive our action plans.  I, personally, really appreciate this about you.
