Faculty in Early Childhood Education Department (ECED), elementary faculty in the Curriculum and Instruction (CUAI) department, teachers at University School at ETSU, and teachers in the NE TN region have been collaborating since 2017 to develop and implement an innovative model of pre-service teacher preparation in STEM education.
The collaboration covers grades Pre-K through 3rd grade for ECED and K-5th grade for CUAI's elementary education program.
