What differences do you notice when working with preservice teachers vs. inservice teachers in informal spaces?
Debi Hanuscin
01:40:16
Love these science-rich environments for preservice teachers!

Danielle
01:41:39
Are the pre-service teachers all undergraduate? How were these off-campus hands-on experiences built into a typical undergraduate course schedule? How often do pre-service teachers engage in these experiences in a given semester?
Danielle
01:44:17
Thank you
Ellen Barnett
01:44:32
Huge thanks, Loyola and partners! Wonderful work! I see some connections between your partnership and ours.
Jennifer Cook, Louisiana Sea Grant
01:47:37
I'm wanting to find ways to bring wetland education to schools in North Louisiana.
Hannah Eisla
01:47:49
I would love to start a partnership, especially to help strengthen geoscience education in Georgia at the Pk-12 level
Debi Hanuscin
01:47:57
Teachers see what they do in the classroom as supporting students' learning of science outside of school (not vice versa)
Heather Lavender
01:48:10
A children's museum in Athens, Ga.
Daisy Mae Bongtiwon
01:48:46
Good Morning from the Philippines!!I would like to start a partnership about STEM education.
Dannah (Dane) Schaffer
01:49:07
Starting a partnership with a new STEM Museum for Children in Minot, ND. Being built, will be completed in 2023.
Lara Smetana | she/her
01:50:37
What a spectacular setting!
Ellen Barnett
01:53:22
It's gorgeous, Lara! Thanks!
Debi Hanuscin
01:56:46
Please share questions in the chat!
Ellen Barnett
01:57:20
Yes, please, happy to answer questions:) Thanks!
Lara Smetana | she/her
01:58:23
Jared & Lyric, what advice do you have for folks who might want to start building partnerships like we've heard about here?
Debi Hanuscin
01:59:42
REACH OUT- yessss!
Andrea Lucas
02:00:15
Great work Lamar/Bowden/Trinity/Bamberger team!
Jennifer Cook, Louisiana Sea Grant
02:01:06
This is the first week in a month that I'm actually indoor. Lots of teacher pd and student outdoor learning this summer!
Jared Holmes
02:01:08
Thanks everyone! I am happy to connect and help anyone, I have friends all over the world that love the outdoors and to talk science
Victoria Martinez
02:03:21
Melissa and I are also willing to help any way we can with connecting ideas to other academic disciplines.
Lyric Johnson
02:04:23
Reaching out to any universities is a great step- Brian is a great example!
Jamie Wallace, AMNH (she, her)
02:08:57
CRSE = culturally responsive and sustaining education
Ellen Barnett
02:12:23
I'd love to hear more about how teachers see themselves as part of the places.
Danielle
02:12:25
From your reviews, have you found many examples of sustainable community partnerships without large grant/outside funding?
Danielle Adler
02:14:01
Amazing you have your own teacher prep program! I am hoping to create partnerships between teacher prep programs and ISEs in my area for mentorships and working to determine how to begin.
Ellen Barnett
02:14:27
@AndreaLucas, thank you, for your kind words and for being here.
Lara Smetana | she/her
02:14:27
NSTA had a great informal share-a-thon session at the recent conference, and ASTE has a division devoted to informal science ed as well -- both ways to connect with likeminded folks and brainstorm ideas/share challenges, etc
Flavio Mendez, NSTA
02:15:18
When working at Maryland Science Center in Baltimore, we establish a partnership with a local university instructor. Preservice teachers visit the Science Center and serve as trained volunteers within the Science Center. No grants required.
Julie Contino (she/her)
02:15:19
Something to think about is scientists often need to include outreach for their science grants so partnerships can sometimes leverage that (this is the case at AMNH)
Hannah Eisla
02:15:36
I have seen targeted ads for AMNH’s MAT program! How did that program begin as an inroad in the community for earth science education?
Lisa Kelly
02:15:48
I'm wondering if anyone from ISLEs can speak to internal collaboration between education experts and science content experts as parts of these programs and partnerships.
Jamie Wallace, AMNH (she, her)
02:16:18
@Danielle that's great! Feel free to reach out with any questions.
Flavio Mendez, NSTA
02:16:20
To this day, almost 20 years later, the program continues.
Hannah Eisla
02:16:25
I can’t wait for you all to come see us in Atlanta next year!
Julie Contino (she/her)
02:16:41
@Hannah - we started with Race to the top funding from NY state
Victoria Martinez
02:16:43
There are some examples of this work with sustainability and partnerships in one of the videos we shared. I can share a link to that here in just a second.
Julie Contino (she/her)
02:17:14
NYS used those funds to start residencies like the one we now have
Victoria Martinez

Danielle
02:18:00
Thank you all for your perspective on this!
Jamie Wallace, AMNH (she, her)
02:18:22
@Hannah AMNH has a long-standing history of partnerships with teachers and higher education institutions. Our MAT residency program was designed to address the critical shortage of qualified and certified Earth science teachers in New York State
Preeti Gupta
02:18:23
Such great conversation!
Victoria Martinez
02:19:14
Reach out to your cities sustainable partners. We did and invited them to listen to students present. We then were able to reach out to them to speak to students. Your water companies are a great resource too.
Natasha Cooke-Nieves, AMNH
02:19:17
@Flavio- a great way to start an informal/formal partnership
Ellen Barnett
02:19:32
One of the challenges of partnerships is continuity as people move, change roles, etc. It's helpful when resources are shared in a repository and move forward with the changing team.
Lara Smetana | she/her
02:19:34
Lisa - this is one of the most fun parts of the partnership. We've had such fabulous conversations sitting down and thinking about what aspects of the curriculum the ISLEs can best help us to teach about. It really is important for us to make sure we connect regularly.
Preeti Gupta
02:19:44
Yes passion is so key. Also also - not having a few people knowing the process/systems - having layers of staff who know the guiding principles of the partnership
Lara Smetana | she/her
02:20:05
Definitely a challenge, Ellen!
Jamie Wallace, AMNH (she, her)
02:20:33
So true, fostering and sharing institutional knowledge is so critical
Julie Contino (she/her)
02:21:56
Sounds like having a system to develop teacher leaders for the partnership can be very helpful
Preeti Gupta
02:21:59
One strategy is that if there is a program or course with preservice teachers is to make sure you have co-leaders, and each course has co-faculty
Jared Holmes
02:22:16
@Julie YEEEESSSSSS
Andrea Lucas
02:23:02
Agreed Julie! Partners are often looking for schools willing to do work that is outside of the box and not a “traditional” field trip. I think being creative is key as well.
Victoria Martinez
02:23:09
Julie, yes! It takes a community.
Victoria Martinez
02:23:50
Andrea has also been awesome at helping us get in contact with people around San Antonio. Shout out to you! Thank you Andera!
Victoria Martinez
02:23:55
Andrea.
Julie Contino (she/her)
02:23:57
Our AMNH grads have provided PL for other teachers on how to use museum resources, lead field trips, etc.
Natasha Cooke-Nieves, AMNH
02:24:06
AMNH MAT program has a co-teaching model- where even our science content courses are with a museum scientist AND an educator
Natasha Cooke-Nieves, AMNH
02:24:30
The preservice teachers co-teach with our partner residency school mentor teachers.
Lyric Johnson
02:25:16
Being a preservice teacher who is brand new, it is super important to have the communication with my mentor teacher, administators, and the partners
Lisa Kelly
02:25:37
AMNH - thanks for sharing info on the co-teaching models
Heidi Moisan, she/her: CHM
02:26:50
With university partners, knowing the research protocols and getting on top of all the paperwork has been essential in being able to collect data from university students and cultural org partners.
Debi Hanuscin
02:26:51
LOVE that idea!
Lyric Johnson
02:28:26
It is super awesome to see kids' behavior and their passion when we use the backward planning! I was able to experience this first-hand when the kids were working on the pollinator project!
Heidi Moisan, she/her: CHM
02:28:53
Great tip Lara!
