Radford's program is so well-rounded that I was able to become both a stronger mathematician and stronger educator, all while conducting and writing my own original graduate research. The impacts on my own teaching seemed to increase daily. I was continuously bringing new skills back to my classroom from my coursework at Radford."
Secondary Mathematics Professional Development Center
The Secondary Mathematics Professional Development Center at Radford University is supported by funding from the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) through the Mathematics and Science Partnership grant program (MSP).
Currently (2015-2018), we are in our seventh-ninth year of grant funding from the VDOE. Partnered with Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), Longwood University, NASA Langley Research Center (NASA), Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (VT), and 27 Virginia school divisions, we provide top-quality online professional development which enables high school mathematics teachers to improve their mathematics content knowledge, pedagogy content knowledge, and assessment skills.
The grant provides high school mathematics teachers in partnering districts with tuition and supplies for graduate-level coursework at Radford University, Virginia Commonwealth University and Longwood University, as well as travel and housing for a NASA summer institute and virtual summer professional development with VT engineers.
