During the three-day program participants will each choose one learning pathway to follow.  Each pathway is comprised of 5-sequential blocks, and address a critical STEM education issue in-depth. This pathway approach reflects the idea that change affects the individual first, and that the individuals engaged in reform need to understand reform concepts from their level of expertise before they can effectively translate theory into practice. Participants will also have the opportunity to choose 3-salon sessions to attend.  Salon sessions are offered between Pathway blocks, giving participants time to meet one another and deepen their knowledge of STEM through 75-minute content-focused sessions.
