ATC Frequently Asked Questions
Advanced Teacher Capacity offers professional development in mathematics, statistics, and modeling for mathematics teachers in Grades 9-12. The project is funded by a grant from the Improving Teacher Quality Program administered by the Ohio Board of Regents. The ATC project will offer two programs during summer 2013, each with follow-up during the 2013-2014 school year: Modspar and QUANT.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What does it cost to attend an ATC program?
The registration fee for each ATC program is $100. Some school districts will pay the registration fee for their teachers. The registration fee is returned to ATC scholars after the summer institute in the form of teacher stipends. Each teacher receives a stipend of $40 per day or $400 for the entire summer institute. Meals and parking are provided. Scholars who live more than 45 miles from Athens receive free accommodations on campus.
Where are the accommodations for residential participants, and will I have to share a room?
Residential scholars stay on campus in a recently renovated dorm with air conditioning. We have requested a dorm that is across the street from McCracken Hall, which houses the College of Education. Meals will be a short walk away in a newly renovated dining hall. You will not have to share a room, and you will have access to common areas in the dorm in case you wish to socialize or work with other scholars.
Can you accommodate dietary restrictions?
In many cases, yes. Please contact program manager Mary Harmison at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Can I earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs) by attending an ATC program?
Yes, all scholars receive a certificate of completion, which can be used for CEUs. Each summer institute is 60 contact hours; each follow-up workshop is 6 contact hours. Scholars who attend all meetings for either QUANT or Modspar will complete 72 contact hours by the end of the program. Scholars who attend both institutes in the same year (with combined follow-up workshops) will complete 132 contact hours.
What is the cost for graduate credit? How many credit hours are earned? When will the course show on my transcript?
Those who enroll in an ATC program for graduate credit pay a reduced tuition fee of $600 in addition to the $100 registration fee. Each program is 4 semester hours of graduate credit, comprised of 2 hours of mathematics credit and 2 hours of mathematics education credit. The course will be complete and grades will be posted at the end of the summer session. They should show on your transcript by early fall.
Will the ATC program pay for my substitute teacher on the days I attend the two follow-up workshops?
For 2013-2014, ATC program will reimburse your school district up to $85 per day for the cost of your substitute teacher.
To register: Registration for the 2013 Modspar and QUANT programs will be available in February 2013. Preregistered teachers will be notified first when registration opens.
