The STEM Learning Ecosystems Initiative hosts bi-annual Community of Practice Convenings for all participating STEM Learning Ecosystems.
The Community of Practice Convenings provides the key platform for a national and regional peer-to-peer professional learning network for communities to share information and expertise. Members of the Community of Practice help shape the agenda for the convenings with access to STEM and cross-sector collaboration experts from across the country.
In addition, communities have the opportunity to participate in monthly Community of Practice phone calls/web-based meetings with national, state and regional speakers (including grantmakers, STEM experts, cross-collaboration experts, and education policy experts) and maintain communication and share resources through a web-based platform.
The East Valley STEM Alliance was also able to make an appearance at this meeting through the help of their Member of Technical Staff & Community Outreach, Omar Alam! Omar also represents Viasat as their RF/Microwave Test Engineer! We are excited to see the important changes to come over the next few months!
