Connecting with Community Partners with Click2SciencePD and The Connectory
The National Girls Collaborative Project is excited to partner with Click2SciencePD to showcase the "Connecting with Community Partners" collection of training resources designed to support educators with building partnerships to enhance and extend their STEM programs.
We know that high levels of collaboration among educators and programs increases the overall capacity of programs and therefore increases STEM opportunities for youth (see NGCP publication, Increasing Collaboration). However, collaborating and developing partnerships are skills that take work and training to do effectively. During this webinar, attendees will be introduced to best practices for building partnerships by exploring Click2SciencePD’s rich collection of professional development resources. Additionally, attendees will learn how they can use The Connectory, a new online collaboration tool for STEM program providers, to find and connect with local partners easily and efficiently.
Click2SciencePD is an innovative, online professional development site that supports trainers, coaches, and site directors in improving the STEM facilitation skills of frontline staff and volunteers working in out-of-school time programs serving youth. Click2Science is developed by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension, in partnership with the Noyce Foundation. For more information visit: http://www.click2sciencepd.org.
