The Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS), the Education Development Center (EDC) and the Knowles Teacher Initiative hosted a Math/Science Teacher Leadership Symposium April 29–May 3, 2016, in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The symposium was held to understand and articulate the features of high-quality mathematics and science teacher leadership programs, in an effort to decrease fragmentation across mathematics and science education, and develop recommendations for future practice and research in teacher leadership development. Nineteen leading professionals in mathematics and science education and teacher leadership attended the symposium, which was the second phase of a two-year project funded by the National Science Foundation, Developing math/science teacher leadership: A consensus approach to evaluating program quality.
