Empowering Christian teachers to train the next generation of scientists.
Fifty teachers of science, of all expertise levels from grades K–8, came together in Grand Rapids, Michigan, November 17–18, 2016, for two days of instruction in Van Andel Education Institute's Community of Practice model, designed to support transformation of science teaching and learning to a practice-based culture. CSESA is a collaborative effort of Christian Schools International, the Association for Christian Schools International, and the Van Andel Education Institute. In the webinar recording below, speakers from ACSI, CSI, and VAEI explore the need and purpose of CSESA, explain the role of the Van Andel Education Institute, and review the program details.
A wonderful group of educators dove deep and took advantage of the 2016 Christian School Educators Science Academy (CSESA). We want to thank everyone who applied. We were amazed and blessed by the number of applications, the diversity of the applicants, and the passion among our member school teachers for continued learning and advancement of science education.
