Research and outreach is a critical part of the Cal Teach Berkeley mission. Over the past 10 years our instructors, staff, and students have been published in prestigious peer-reviewed journals and invited to speak and present at local, state, and national conferences. Each of these highlights our program’s contributions to advancing STEM education and teacher preparation research.
