The Western Regional Noyce Conference is a great professional development opportunity for Noyce Scholars, Mentor Teachers, and project staff to meet, network and discuss issues pertinent to teaching in high need schools. By attending the conference, Scholars will increase their knowledge and strategies to enhance student learning in their classrooms, making them better prepared for their teaching assignments and closing the achievement gap.
This year, the conference will be in beautiful Southern California at the Westin Hotel, Costa Mesa on March 25-27, 2011. Across the pedestrian bridge from the hotel is South Coast Plaza shopping center with more than 280 retail stores and a wide variety of dining options.
The grant will pay for travel and hotel costs associated with the conference for approved attendees. Please do not make travel reservations until you have approval from CSULB. All hotel reservations will be made by CSULB therefore you do not need to make hotel reservation. Scholars and Fellows will be sharing rooms.
The conference will include relevant speakers and informative workshops focused topics, such as classroom management, technology, and model lessons/activities, for Noyce Scholars and Mentor Teachers. There will also be several opportunities to network and meet fellow Scholars and Teachers.
