MSEN Long-Range Goals 1996-2000. University of North Carolina Mathematics and Science Education Network.
North Carolina Univ., Chapel Hill. Mathematics and Science Education Network.
The University of North Carolina (UNC) Mathematics and Science Education Network (MSEN) applies the resources of UNC to strengthen mathematics and science education in K-16 schools throughout the state of North Carolina. MSEN has 10 centers located on university campuses statewide and six pre-college sites at these universities. University faculty direct center operations and provide workshops and courses for K-12 teachers. These professional development offerings bring teachers into contact with university faculty, scientists, and other professionals to expose them to the most current educational research. This publication of MSEN's long-range goals begins with vision and mission statements, followed by lists of beliefs and policies. Long-range goals are: (1) increase the number of underrepresented students who pursue mathematics- and/or science-based fields of study at the post-secondary level; (2) develop, implement, and evaluate programs that integrate technology into the teaching of K-12 mathematics and science; (3) conduct an ongoing and systematic program of assessment to identify those areas in North Carolina's mathematics and science education that need improvement; and (4) sponsor and conduct research and development in mathematics and science education. This booklet concludes with an Executive Summary. (PVD)
