He will give the first presentation of the results from the 2018 National Survey of Science and Mathematics Teachers. Yes, you get the news first while at ASTE!! His talk is titled “Results from the 2018 National Survey of Science and Mathematics Education: Challenges and Opportunities for Science Teacher Educators in Changing Times.”

In this first presentation of results from the 2018 National Survey of Science and Mathematics Education, participants will learn about this national survey and hear about the important findings. The presented findings will focus on the preparation, professional development experiences, and the potential needs of science teachers. There are important implications from these findings for science teacher educators.
