What is s MI Sci PLN you ask?
MI Sci PLN is a learning community for PK-20 science education professionals whose responsibilities may include leading implementation efforts, delivering teacher professional learning programs, curriculum and assessment design, and pre-service teacher preparation for the purpose of enhancing communication, encouraging cooperation, and inspiring collaboration. Community members meet to share their work, learn about exciting efforts around the state, and hear important updates (ex., MI Sci PLN Agenda & MI Sci PLN Updates, May 20, 2022). It is led by representatives of groups committed to science education from across the state, including, MDE, MiSTEM, MMSLN, MSELA, MSTA, ISD/RESAs, universities, and independent consultants, each with connections to national science education leadership to ensure the entire community shares a vision for science education, is well informed, connected, and is prepared to lead efforts in their area of influence.
In essence, it’s an amazing community of supportive and very cool people that will help you do your job better. Trust me!
See you soon!
