Accelerate Learning today announces the formation of the National Institute for STEM Education (NISE). Headquartered in Houston, NISE was conceived by practicing educators and is based on thousands of hours of research, professional development, curriculum design and educational leadership. Using an online learning platform and unique digital portfolio, NISE offers a STEM certification program for campuses and districts, as well as teachers.
Through the self-paced, competency-based programs, participants can learn and apply their proficiency in the key domains of STEM teaching that are essential to creating effective classrooms that increase student achievement. Teachers who successfully complete the National Certificate for STEM Teaching will also have access to an affordable and accelerated Master of Education in STEM Leadership with the globally recognized American College of Education (ACE).
NISE will make its debut with American College of Education at the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) National Conference on Science Education in Nashville, March 31 through April 2, at booth #520.
