PLTW Summer Training Institute

Core Training at CSUEB

Core Training is a two-week intensive course to give teachers an overview of the PLTW Biomedical Science courses to be taught to high school students. The courses are taught by Project Lead the Way Master Teachers. Teachers from across the Western Region are invited to take these courses for professional developments and preparation for their delivery in high schools. Our University has an agreement with PLTW to facilitate the delivery of the PLTW Biomedical Sciences program. We provide and coordinate activities such as professional development (i.e. Core Training, Info Meeting and a Biomedical Workshop), college credit (i.e. Continuing Education and Graduate credit for teachers), and statewide/regional support and communication.

As a national affiliate CSUEB will offer: 1) Training opportunities for teachers, administrators and counselors; 2) Ongoing professional development for teachers and counselors; and 3) Continuing Education credit opportunities for teachers. School counselors facilitate student success by promoting the program in the school; educating parents and students about the benefits of the program; and coordinating the choices that help students fit PLTW courses into their program of studies.
