This is not a UMass Amherst program.
Contact information is below.
50 Modeling Workshops in high school and middle school sciences will
be offered this summer, in many states. Most workshops are two or
three weeks long. CEUs; optional graduate credit, stipends at
grant-funded sites. Modeling Instruction is research-informed.
Registration is open for all workshops, and they are filling up fast.
Please plan your summer professional development and think about taking a
Modeling Workshop. Ask your school administration to help pay.

ABOUT MODELING INSTRUCTION:
Modeling Instruction is designated as an Exemplary K-12 science program
and a Promising Educational Technology program by the U.S. Department
Modeling Workshops are peer-led. Content is reorganized around basic
models to increase its structural coherence. Participants are supplied
with a complete set of course materials and work through activities
alternately in roles of student or teacher, as they practice techniques
of guided inquiry and cooperative learning.
