ORAU is proud to present the
Tennessee STEM Leadership Academy
Tennessee STEM Leadership Academy – Presented by Oak Ridge Associated Universities
The Tennessee STEM Leadership Academy, funded through Race to The Top funds, is a professional development program that will create a cadre of current K-12 STEM teachers and administrators to serve as lead liaisons to the Tennessee STEM Innovation Network (TSIN).
The Academy will recruit 150 teachers and administrators representing Tennessee’s 136 school districts, and feature programs focused on innovative practices, communication technologies and pedagogical approaches to expand active STEM learning environments across Tennessee.
The Academy will facilitate the dissemination of best practices from STEM platform schools, TN STEM Hubs and the TSIN. As liaisons, Academy Fellows will disseminate information to teachers and administrators in their districts.
The Academy will provide ongoing support to the Academy Fellows through TSIN sponsored meetings, workshops, webinars and conference calls.
