The UTeach STEM teacher preparation program uniquely prepares science teachers to implement the Next Generation Science Standards. UTeach emphasizes the development of deep content knowledge in STEM disciplines; inquiry- and project-based approaches to teaching; and develops in future teachers the habits of mind and practices of mathematicians, scientists and engineers. Universities across the country are transforming their approach to recruiting and preparing teachers by adopting the UTeach program. Together, more than 40 universities are working to strengthen university-based STEM teacher preparation nationally. ASEE TV travels to the University of Texas at Austin, where it all started.
