The purpose of the NCSLA Science Leadership Fellows Program is to enhance professional competence and develop the leadership abilities necessary for science leaders to operate effectively in various leadership positions in science education. The NCSLA Fellows program has had a busy February. We are preparing to say goodbye to our 2016-2018 Cohort and hello to our 2018-2020 Cohort. This new cohort is truly making history.

The Fellows program has taken on a more scholarly look and feel. Thanks to the work of committee members Pat Shane and Dennis Kubasko as well as NCSLA President Alisa Wickliff, the Fellows program has a syllabus to help participants on their journey as advocates for science/ STEM education. In addition, cohort members reflect on scholarly research articles and book readings. For the first time, each cohort member must keep a digital portfolio that shows their growth throughout the two-year cohort.

Another history making move is the new twitter hashtag. Led by new cohort member Jenna Hartley, the 2018- 2020 Cohort chose a hashtag that is branded just for them. You can follow their movements on Twitter through #ncslafp2020. There are a few great photos of their first weekend.
