ITEEA 21st Century Leadership Academy

ITEEA01.jpgRecently, I was fortunate enough to be awarded one of six places on the ITEEA’s 21st Century Leadership Academy. This is one of several schemes that the organisation run to support and encourage those within the field of Technology and Engineering Education. I was fortunate enough to attend a fantastic conference last month held at the National Harbour in Washington DC and, as well as attending a range of stimulating presentations and keynotes, I was able to meet with those who had also gained a place on the programme. Having spent some time learning about the scheme from Dr Roger Hill and Dr Bill Havice, it sounds truly excellent and very supportive of those things we all aspire to achieve. I very much look forward to working with everyone over the coming year.

STEMDetails of the 21st Century Leadership Academy can be found here and I would strongly encourage you to visit the ITEEA here and find out about the fantastic work they are undertaking in the field of Technology and Engineering Education – particularly with regard to Integrative STEM in elementary, junior and high schools.

About dmorrisonlove

I am a lecturer and researcher in the School of Education at the University of Glasgow, Scotland. I am a member of the Curriculum, Assessment & Pedagogy Research Group and I am interested in the learning and teaching within Technology & STEM subjects in secondary schools. I have a keen interest in studying learning within and across different contexts, how children develop technological understanding and capability and better understanding how they learn and problem solve through interaction with physical materials and objects. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a member of the International Technology and Engineering Education Association. I also sit on the National Technologies Forum for Scotland. I am very keen to hear from anyone who shares interests in similar areas.
