Boise State University to Implement UTeach Beginning Fall 2012
May 10, 2012Supported by an initial grant from the Micron Foundation, IDoTeach will begin enrolling Step 1 students this fall.
Boise State University has partnered with the Micron Foundation to implement UTeach beginning this fall. The new program, IDoTeach, will recruit science, mathematics, computer science, and engineering majors to try out teaching.
Boise State is the first university in Idaho to implement the UTeach model. “This is a pipeline issue that includes the development of a strong student understanding of science and math before college. Without that understanding, the pipeline begins to leak and crumble,” said co-director, Louis Nadelson. “By creating this program in Idaho, Boise State is being progressive and active in its approach to addressing this challenging problem and doing it with a program that is proven to be successful.”
