2019 Spring Conference Presenter's Proposal Information
Teacher Enrichment Initiatives
9th Annual TELA Annual Spring Conference
(formerly the VBTA)
UT Health San Antonio - Main Campus
Conference Date: February 2, 2019
Presenter Form Due: December 14, 2018
The Teacher Enrichment Initiatives (TEI), located in the Department of Pharmacology, is pleased to announce a call for presentations for the 9th annual TEI Spring Conference. The conference, held at UT Health San Antonio, will be Saturday, February 2, 2019 and will be attended by K-12 science teachers from Central and South Texas. The conference is one of the few opportunities where area teachers can connect with scientists. Your participation will ensure classroom science lessons reflect current science research while expanding teacher knowledge about STEM career options for their students. At the conference there are four 55-minute workshop blocks. We ask presenters to prepare for a 45-minute presentation which allows time for discussion and workshop evaluation forms.
In addition to sharing research, we encourage presenters to include information about their own journey into science. Your story provides teachers with important information they can share with their own students about pathways to STEM careers. In appreciation for participating, the TEI provides breakfast and lunch for all presenters. This is an important opportunity for teachers to network with one another and with presenters.
