SciMath-DLL is a professional development model co-created with educators with funding from the National Science Foundation (see below). The model includes workshops, professional learning communities, and reflective coaching. Results of our evaluation are forthcoming.
What's Next Our professional learning and development resources are evolving. We plan to launch versions of our resources for teacher educators, which we will launch during a Preschool STEM Institute.
