Attracting PhDs to K-12 Education: A Demonstration Program for Science, Mathematics, and Technology   Cohort I. State Structures – frameworks (Moderator: Myles Gordon) What partnerships with colleges or universities? What formal and informal opportunities for paid positions? Needs of states. What needs to be in place? Cohort II. District/School - teacher mentoring – within states (Moderator: Kristina Peterson) What will be the structure in schools? What are appropriate state/university interactions with their cohort of say 5-10 students? What are the rewards for the district master teacher mentor? Cohort III. Format of Certification Year (Moderator: Emily Feistritzer) Bring cohort together nationally? How might that be done? State /university partnerships for postdoctoral K-12 mathematics and science pedagogy Issues of collaboration between science disciplines and education colleges Are there many ways to certification? Are some more suitable for postdoctoral students? How can that be addressed? Cohort IV. Disciplines and Discipline-based Pedagogies – what is needed and when?
