Alliance+ Grant: National Internet-in-Education Teacher Training Program
A professional development project that prepares teachers to integrate technology into the curriculum in innovative ways that enhance student learning and support higher levels of achievement in math and science.

Pathways Project
Community College Pathways to Improved Teacher Preparation Through Technology (Pathways) project adapts a proven set of P-12 training materials and Internet-based curricula for use in math, science, language arts, and educational technology in community college courses taken by pre-service teachers. It will create an online library of technology-based learning objects to promote constructivist learning in the community colleges. 

Future Educators of America
This program provides a forum for students to become aware of career opportunities in education and nurtures their interest in teaching as a career. The program also provides an avenue for members to stay informed of the latest issues and advancements in the education profession.

National Science Teachers Association Student Chapter
This program provides a forum for Science Education students to acquaint preservice teachers with the support resources available from NSTA and create a network that provides information of the latest issues and advancements in the science education profession.

Project TRIPS: Teaching Reformed through Informal Programs of Study
Project TRIPS strives to provide rich and stimulating opportunities outside of the traditional classroom setting to pre-service special education teachers by building relationships/partnerships with Informal Learning Institutions (ILIs) in Miami such as museums, science center, and community organizations.  The goal is to increase these future educators’ appreciation and understanding of the content areas of: math, science, language arts and social studies and the great diversity of our nation through a constructivist approach.
