The Robins Awards are the most coveted of all Utah State honors. They reward students and faculty for hard work and dedication to their individual goals, as well as the goals of USU. The awards memorialize William E. Robins, a campus hero who had a rare quality to turn his vision into Utah State's vision. Robins was a Sigma Nu at Utah State who served as USU's student body president in 1949. He was the primary and initial visionary of today's Taggart Student Center. The Professional Advisor of the Year Award is given to recognize and emphasize excellence in academic advising. Shelley received this award at the Robins Award Ceremony on April 11, 2015 and TEAL congratulates her on this achievement and appreciates all she has done to help her students.
The secondary science students (as part of the methods courses) reviewed, revised, and taught four lessons at Bear River Charter School on electronic textiles and circuitry. Using backward design lesson planning, students developed middle school science content lessons regarding energy and circuits and used crafting and novel materials to provide students more authentic inquiry experiences. The culminating lesson, seen here in the pictures, shows middle school students working on their light up bracelets.
Steven Camicia and Marialuisa Di Stefano have published a new chapter entitled, "Positionality and Glocal Encounters in Social Studies Teacher Education" in an edited book entitled, Promoting Global Competence & Social Justice in Teacher Education.
