2015 CALIFORNIA SCIENCE EDUCATION CONFERENCE

OCTOBER 2-4, 2015 • SACRAMENTO, CA

SHORT COURSE PROPOSALS

Share what you've learned with your peers. Consider submitting short course proposal, beginning November 2014.

We invite you to share your teaching strategies and science expertise with your colleagues by presenting a short course at the California Science Education Conference. CSTA seeks classroom teachers, informal educators, university professors, education professionals, and other members of the education community who can conduct interesting, informative, and useful three- or six-hour short courses for conference attendees.

CSTA encourages you to make your short course subject matter and grade level specific (as opposed to multidisciplinary and spanning all grade levels). This, along with a well organized, well written, and informative description, will increase your chances of having your proposal accepted.

All short course proposals will be reviewed by two members of the 2015 Conference Committee. The name of the proposal submitter is not viewable by the reviewer. For a copy of the rubric that will be used to review the proposals, please visit http://www.cascience.org/csta/pdf/Rubric.pdf. CSTA seeks to offer a variety and balance of programming across grade levels and subject matters. Thus, the selection of short courses is based not only on their review score, but also on the number of short courses needed to offer this diverse programming.
