This 90 minutes workshop will engage participants in understanding how engineering design practices can be brought into core content classes to support conceptual model development in students as part of the model development cycle. Participants will have a chance to map this learning using frameworks developed by the facilitators. The Engaged Quality Instruction Through Professional Development (EQuIPD) is a teacher professional development project funded by the US Department of Education through the Supporting Effective Educator Development (SEED) program. EQuIPD experts will lead this workshop with the aim of supporting teachers as they develop the capacity and build competency in creating and using conceptual models of the core content that they teach. This workshop will engage participants in understanding how engineering design practices can be brought into core content classes to support conceptual model development in students as part of the model development cycle. Participants will have a chance to map this learning using frameworks developed by the facilitators through collaborative, hands-on activities during each stage of the session. They will work through the workshop activities either in a face-to-face or virtual format. After the eliciting and developing stages, participants will go into small groups or breakout rooms to deploy the workshop findings into their own work. Participants will come back together at the end to receive feedback to refine their lessons or outcomes.

Session Abstract

Main Presentors

Dr. Nancy Ruzycki holds a PhD in Physics from Tulane University, is a certified teacher, and holds National Board Certification in Physics. She is a “Modeler” and has trained at Florida International University for Modeling Physics. She teaches at the University of Florida and conducts research on engineering education and the use of models, process maps, and system thinking in teaching. She has received over 5 million US dollars in grant funding in the past three years and is the Principal Investigator on the EQuIPD grant.

Dr. Lorelie Imperial holds a PhD in Curriculum and Instruction - Science Education from the University of Florida and is currently a post-doc for the EQuIPD grant. She specializes in conceptual model development and how to incorporate models into lessons. She also specializes in teaching Chemistry.

Supporting Presentors

Coaches Dr. Krista Dulany, Jared Carter, Seleka Naomi Kerr, Christine Angel Danger and Leigh Arnold are Instructional Coaches on the EQuIPD grant and work as facilitative coaches for teachers in the grant. They have created multiple frameworks for use with teachers to develop lessons that build conceptual models in students.
