ITEEA Professional Learning STEMinar: Lessons for Integrating Biology and Engineering Technology

September 22, 2020 
7:00PM EDT

ITEEA Professional Learning STEMinar 

Lessons for Integrating Biology and Engineering Technology 
Presenter: Todd Kelley, Ph.D., DTE

ITEEA's specially designed professional development STEMinar series focuses on Technology and Engineering Education best practices for leading Integrative STEM Education (I-STEM Education) in your school.

This webinar is FREE for ITEEA members; $45 for nonmembers.

Register at: https://www.iteea.org/steminar47.aspx

Integrated STEM lessons for engineering technology and life science from NSF and Purdue project: Teachers and Researchers Advancing Integrated Lessons in STEM (TRAILS). The presentation will feature free lessons using 3D printing, biomimicry, and Entomology to promote 21st Century Skills, along with tips on how to collaborate with students and co-teachers using the MicroSoft Teams platform.

Five Goals:

  • Share Integrated STEM Framework
  • Share TRAILS approach to STEM
  • Feature TRAILS LESSONS and Highlight TRAILS website
  • Provide highlights of TRAILS student and teacher research

Best Practices in STEM Education when pairing engineering technology and science

Todd R. Kelley, Ph.D, DTE, is an Associate Professor in Technology Leadership and Innovation Department at Purdue University. Dr. Kelley is a STEM education researcher and engineering technology teacher educator. Prior to Purdue, Kelley was a high school and middle school technology teacher for nine years teaching in three school districts in New York state and Indiana.

Dr. Kelley's research focus is in design and cognition, seeking to understand how young students learn design and how design improves STEM education. Kelley was a recent PI on an NSF I-Test project called Teachers and Researchers Advancing Integrated Lessons in STEM (TRAILS). TRAILS prepares science and technology education teachers to integrate STEM content through biomimicry-inspired engineering design.

Dr. Kelley is the program coordinator for the Engineering Teacher Education Program at Purdue. He is also leading the second-year human-centered design course for the Purdue Polytechnic Institute co-taught with Anthropology.
