Teachers in Industry Recruiting for 2014 Cohort
Teachers in Industry, formerly known as MASTER-IP, is recruiting STEM teachers for the summer of 2014 to participate in the innovative business-education partnership.
If you are a middle or high school teacher of science, technology, engineering or math, take a moment to learn more about the program. There are two options:
Option 1: Earn your master's degree. Designed for early and mid-career STEM teachers, you can earn a Master of Arts in Teaching and Teacher Education in three years. This includes three summers of paid industry work experience along with 33 units of coursework.
Option 2: Earn professional development credit. In addition to one summer of industry work experience, you will earn 45 recertification/professional development hours with an option for graduate credit of three units. This option can be repeated for up to three summers.
The program is a real win-win for businesses, teachers and students. As a STEM teacher you gain real world industry knowledge during a 7-9 week placement in a local business for which you are paid. With this knowledge, you can better prepare your students with the 21st century skills they need to enter the workforce. In addition, businesses gain from your professionalism and STEM expertise in completing meaningful work assignments.
