If you have an interest in volunteering in local STEM classrooms, please consider signing up for our CalTeach Courses, since many of them have field placements in which you can get hands-on teaching experience.
For Berkeley Faculty & Staff
As a program primarily for STEM majors, Cal Teach interacts with many academic departments in related fields and we would like to explore increasing these on-campus partnerships. For departmental student advisors and other staff seeking more information about CalTeach, please get in touch with our Student Services Coordinator.
CalTeach is also expanding partnerships with faculty. One key area where faculty involvement is crucial is for research placements for the CalTeach Summer Research Institute. For faculty interested in taking on an instructional role in the CalTeach program, UGIS/EDUC C122: Research Methods is an ideal fit.
In broadening our campus relationships, Cal Teach is also seeking faculty interested in improving K–12 STEM education to act as Faculty Affiliates or Advisory Board members. Campus faculty interested in working with the Cal Teach program are encouraged to get in touch with the faculty co-directors, Professor Deb Nolan (Statistics) or Professor Eugene Chiang (Astrophysics & Earth and Planetary Science).
For Corporations & Non-Profits
The Bay Area is a regional, national, and international leader in many STEM fields and CalTeach is eager to work with corporations and nonprofits interested in helping to prepare the next generation of K–12 educators in these disciplines. Please contact faculty co-directors Professor Deb Nolan and Professor Eugene Chiang if your organization would like to explore a partnership with CalTeach.
