Schedule & Agenda

What, when, where, who

We will need to adjust this to whatever NMSTA decides. They need to have a business meeting and welcome. But here is the keynote speaker info:

William R. Penuel is Distinguished Professor of Learning Sciences and Human Development in the Institute of Cognitive Science and School of Education at the University of Colorado Boulder. He designs and studies curriculum materials, assessments, and professional learning for teachers in STEM education, primarily in science. He also studies how contemplative practices and critical inquiry can support educators in cultivating more compassionate learning environments and schools. A third line of his research focuses on how long-term research-practice partnerships can be organized to address systemic inequities in education systems linked to race, gender and sexual diversity, and language. His research employs a wide range of qualitative and quantitative research methods, including an approach his colleagues and he have developed called design-based implementation research (http://learndbir.org). He is an elected member of the National Academy of Education and a fellow of the American Educational Research Association and International Society of the Learning Sciences.
