Promote College and Career Readiness
Self-paced professional development from Sally Ride Science is now available online, and in dedicated upper-elementary, middle school, and school counselor versions.
This online training is available on PCs, Mac, tablets (including Android and iPad) and via most browsers. It offers the background preparation, classroom activities, and teaching strategies for STEM that were honed for years in the Sally Ride Science Academy brought to you by ExxonMobil. Now available in a more convenient, flexible, and affordable online format.
Engaging video content from STEM leaders, interactive eBooks (included!), hands-on exercises, and a consistent focus on college and career-readiness will help you prepare your students for success in STEM.
Also, upon completing the course you can qualify for a graduate credit through Brandman University (learn more). Your district may also give professional development credit for successful completion as the course offers crucial background for aligning STEM instruction to objectives in the Common Core Standards.
THE COURSE CONTENT
The Sally Ride Online Academy offers new ways for educators to link real world STEM careers with other techniques for engaging students in STEM fields.
Educators will learn how to best present the wide variety of STEM careers to their students, while introducing students to the diverse women and men who work in those ﬁelds.
The course is divided into modules that make self-pacing easy. Throughout the course, you will also be using the included eBooks, which you can access via an iPad or a separate browser window on your computer.
THE COURSE PLATFORM
The Online Academy combines web-based instruction with thoughtful “offline” exercises.
Built on the Canvas system by Instructure—an intuitive interface that makes going through the training fast, fun, and easy—it requires nothing more than a computer or tablet and web-access. In Canvas, you will be a “student” and have a Sally Ride Science facilitator available for any discussions and/or questions.
Once you choose a version and a session, you will be assigned a facilitator and have all of the required eBooks sent to you for use during and after the course.
Versions exist for upper elementary teachers, middle school teachers, and school counselors. Sessions begin every month, with limited enrollment to ensure effective facilitation.
