Technology, Engineering, and Design Educator Professional Development System Implementation: Initial Pilot ResultsThe Transforming Teaching through Implementing Inquiry (T2I2) project is a four-yearresearch and development effort, funded by the National Science Foundation, to createand research an online professional development system for grades 6-12 technology,engineering, and design educators. The system content targets implementation andinstructional practice, as defined by National Board for Professional Teaching Standards(NBPTS), in support of quality classroom indicators for the promotion of studentlearning. Randomly selected middle school and high school technology, engineering, anddesign educators in five states (IL, KY, OH, NC, and VA) served as participants by: 1)completing the T2I2 online professional development materials, 2) submittingartifacts/evidences of practice, 3) administering a student STEM pre-assessment, 4)implementing a single consistent unit of instruction, 5) administering a student STEMpost-assessment. Pilot Year 1 (2012-2013 academic year) teacher outcome data, asmeasured by NBPTS criterion referenced metrics, is analyzed and reported in terms ofability to manage a learning environment, monitor a learning environment, adjust alearning environment to improve instruction, conduct self-assessment, and contribute to alearning community. This project is set to be an ongoing effort with the overall goal toimprove instructional practices for k-12 engineering education.
