National Teachers Enhancement Network (NTEN)
The National Teachers Enhancement Network (NTEN) is one of the country’s most-established online professional development programs for teachers. Courses are designed to help elementary, secondary and community college teachers develop a deeper understanding of science concepts while interacting with and learning new techniques from other teachers and researchers around the globe.
NTEN faculty are university scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and science educators, all experienced in online teaching. Through NTEN, educators can also access professional resources and discuss issues with other educators online. NTEN was created by Montana State University and originally funded by the National Science Foundation. NTEN is part of the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) Institute.
How is NTEN different from other online science programs?
- NTEN strives to teach science concepts, not just educational methods
- NTEN faculty practice a hands-on, inquiry-based style that mirrors the classroom and sparks new ideas
- NTEN facilitates connections among participants, so that teachers learn best practices from colleagues around the world
- NTEN credits come from Montana State University, a top-tier public research institution
