Professional Development Opportunities


The CMSE aims to improve STEM education by offering professional development through workshops, conferences, and institutes for teachers of mathematics and science.  The CMSE also provides educational opportunities for college students, such as scholarships, fellowships, and training programs. CMSE professional development opportunities are:

→ Research-based
→ Focused on student engagement with hands-on activities
→ Designed to develop student-centered classrooms, helpful in creating classroom environments that foster conceptual understanding of mathematics and science
→ Aligned to state and national curriculum standards


Registration Cancellation Policy for Online Events:
It is the goal of the Professional Development Division within the Center for Mathematics and Science Education (CMSE) at the University of Mississippi to provide high-quality research-based professional training for teachers, administrators, and other school leaders. In order to adequately prepare for professional development events, an accurate accounting of the number of participants must be known by the registration deadline. Therefore, any registrant who needs to cancel their registration must do so no later than 11:59 pm (CST) on the published registration deadline. Registrants who cancel before the registration deadline will be eligible to receive a partial refund of registration fees less a 10% processing fee. However, Registrants who cancel less than seven days prior to the registration deadline will not be eligible for a refund of their registration fee. Likewise, if a purchase order is submitted as payment for registration and a registrant cancels prior to the registration deadline, an invoice will be sent to the originator of the purchase order. It is the responsibility of the registrant to notify the CMSE of his/her ability to participate in the event. Changes in registration can be made via email to cmsepd@go.olemiss.edu or by calling 662-915-6621. Effective May 7, 2020.
  • Science and Society and the History of Science are two of the six core elements used to design the 2018 Mississippi College- and Career-Readiness Standards for Science yet their practical role in the classroom may seem vague. Teachers will explore each element, analyze examples, and collaborate with peers, building a better understanding of how to incorporate these elements within their science curriculum.
