Two Fort Hays State University faculty recently presented at the 2018 Association for Science Teacher Education conference in Baltimore, Md.
Dr. Paul Adams, dean of the College of Education, presented “National Survey on the Preparation of Preservice Teachers” and “Preparing Preservice Teachers for 3D Learning to Support the Framework for Science Education.”
Adams also represents the National Science Teachers Association on the ASTE board.
Dr. Teresa Woods, assistant professor of teacher education, presented “I Can Be a Scientist!” Her presentation analyzed essays of preservice elementary teachers describing the effects a science methods course had on their conceptions of science and scientists, their identities as science teachers, and the course elements and learning strategies that caused these changes.
The ASTE promotes leadership and support for professionals involved in the education and development of teachers of science at all levels. ASTE advances practice and policy through scholarship, collaboration and innovation in the education of science teachers.
