Project Kaleidoscope (PKAL) — Advancing what works in STEM education

North Carolina PKAL Network

2013 Spring North Carolina PKAL Network Meeting in Conjunction with the North Carolina Academy of Science Annual Meeting

Pedagogical and Classroom Adaptations: SCALE-UP and Flipped Classrooms
April 5, 2013
University of North Carolina Pembroke
Pembroke, North Carolina

NCU Pembroke

Overview

The North Carolina PKAL Regional Network (NC-PKAL) and the North Carolina Academy of Science (NCAS) have agreed to meet jointly each spring. The first joint meeting will convene on the University of North Carolina Pembroke campus with the PKAL network meeting preceding the NCAS annual meeting. Given the mission of the North Carolina Academy of Science (NCAS) to promote public appreciation of science, science education, scientific research and a meaningful role for science in public policy, the alliance of the NC-PKAL network and NCAS constitutes a synergistic partnership that will advance the goals of both organizations.

On Friday, April 5, 2013, the NC-PKAL meeting will run from 10:00 AM until 4:15 PM and feature a two-hour morning workshop focusing on SCALE-UP and a two hour afternoon workshop focusing on the flipped classroom.
