New Kid on the Block: UALRTeach

posted by Jennifer Godwin

This guest post is from Michelle Brand Buchanan, assistant director of UALRTeach. For the uninitiated, UALRTeach began this semester as a program for future STEM teachers to learn and get early classroom experience.

What do animal tracks and Star Wars have in common (well, besides a tauntaun)?

Both are ways we at UALRTeach have engaged students since launching our program this semester.

UALRTeach offers science and math majors a unique opportunity to experience teaching in the first class (Step 1: Inquiry Approaches to Teaching). Already, we’ve seen the transformation in students as they prepare for their work out in the field.

Check out our videos on our Facebook page that exhibit the program’s incentives with our engaging and exciting students currently enrolled in UALRTeach.

If there is an UALR information event on campus, UALRTeach will be there along with our┬ápelts/tracks/scat, giving away Popeye’s chicken!

Come by our office in Dickinson Hall, Room 406 to find out more information.
