Quinnipiac University Science Teaching and Learning Center Funded by Bristol-Myers Squibb

The Quinnipiac University Science Teaching and Learning Center (QUeST-LC) is committed to bridging the gap between the research on science teaching and learning and the teaching practices used every day in science classrooms. The center helps passionate practitioners who critically reflect on their teaching practices and want to enhance their own classroom practices through two outreach programs.

Weekly workshops are designed to meet the needs of science teachers as they negotiate their understanding of how to implement the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The greatest leverage point for reaching students is highly prepared teachers. This format provides an opportunity for a greater, sustained impact on the education of Connecticut students.

QUeST-LC Hangout is a monthly collaboration designed to provide time and space for Connecticut science teachers to meet with colleagues to work on NGSS-based instructional units, NGSS-based assessments and implementation strategies. This four-hour block of time is designed to: support a “critical friends” collaboration, encourage an eagerness, energy and enthusiasm for meaningful science teaching, prevent teacher isolation as they work to enact NGSS in their classrooms, schools and school districts, and provide a safe, supportive space to negotiate the paradigm shift toward the NGSS.
