Online professional development program from the National Institute for STEM Education focuses on high-impact STEM instructional strategies that work across content areas

HOUSTON, June 23, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The National Certificate for STEM Teaching (NCST) from the National Institute for STEM Education (NISE) has been selected as a winner in SmartBrief’s EdTech Readers’ Choice Awards for 2022. The NCST is one of three co-winners in the professional development category. SmartBrief readers nominated the solutions and platforms they find most effective, and selected their favorite edtech programs in several categories.

The National Certificate for STEM Teaching is an online, competency-based professional development program for preK-12 teachers. It focuses on high-impact STEM instructional strategies that work synergistically across content areas. Designed with working educators in mind, the NCST is personalized, job-embedded, standards-focused, and convenient. Participants can start the 100% online, self-paced program at any time, with support from a virtual STEM coach.

The NCST is part of a unique, stackable professional development solution. NISE’s "STEM Essentials" Micro Certificate online courses can be applied to the NCST, and the NCST can be applied to American College of Education’s (ACE) STEM-focused graduate programs. ACE provides six hours of graduate credit to NCST graduates who enroll in its online STEM Master’s or Doctoral programs. Through this continuum of solutions, NISE provides the only comprehensive, 100% online professional learning path focused on improving and increasing STEM instruction across all preK-12 classrooms.
