Science TEU Program at Trinity College
The Teaching Experiences for Undergraduates (TEU) program is a 7 week immersive summer experience in secondary science education at Trinity College in Hartford, CT funded by the National Science Foundation. TEU participants earn a generous stipend, take a 60-hour course in science pedagogy, and apply what they’re learning to teaching urban high school students under the supervision of a master teacher-mentor.
Dr. Kurt Love serves as the Director of Science Education for the TEU program at Trinity. Dr. Love will teach the course in secondary science pedagogy and lead the team of experienced Hartford Magnet Trinity College Academy science teachers in mentoring the twelve TEU participants. Dr. Love grew up in Shelton, CT, earned his Ph.D. in science education at the University of Connecticut and is an associate professor at Central Connecticut State University in the Department of Educational Leadership, Policy, and Instructional Technology. He taught middle school science in Hartford, West Hartford, and Cheshire. He worked with the Environmental Sciences Magnet School in Hartford developing sustainability based project learning experiences for PreK-8 students. He has worked with teachers and students in school districts throughout the central Connecticut region. He is currently writing a book entitled, “Reclaiming Education for Sustainability and Peace” due out in late 2016 or early 2017.
