The Department of Chemistry and the Center for Research on Lifelong STEM Learning welcome Cornell University Professor of Science Communication Bruce Lewenstein, who will share reflections on the new 2016 National Academies’ report entitled “Communicating Chemistry: A Framework for Sharing Science”. Dr. Lewenstein served as a member of the consensus committee charged with drafting the report.
The Department of Botany and Plant Pathology invites you to hear a talk by Dr. Martin Storksdieck in ALS 4001 on Thursday, September 24th from 4:00 - 5:00 pm. Dr. Storksdieck will present on diversity and underrepresentation in higher education. A discussion will immediately follow.
May 21st at 4:00 pm in Milam 215, ESTEME@OSU and Dr. Eric Weber will host Dr. Jess Ellis of Colorado State University. Dr. Ellis will present her research focusing on GTA’s development as innovative instructors while discussing two models of PD Programs that support them, as both primary instructors and recitation leaders, in enacting successful student-centered instruction.
Abstract: Supporting Graduate Students as Innovative Instructors
In mid May, the Center for Research on Lifelong STEM Learning and the Center for Teaching and Learning will co-host a series of salons on the National Academies' report "Reaching Students: What Research Says About Effective Instruction in Undergraduate Science and Engineering". Though the times and dates are to be determined, you can prepare for our salons by reading through the report, which can be found here:
Hosted by the ESTEME@OSU project team on Monday, May 11th in Milam 215 from 5:00 – 7:00 pm, the ESTEME project team will emcee an informal showcase and discussion of what different STEM units around campus do to provide graduate and undergraduate teaching assistants with training, orientation, and support for their teaching assignments.
Join us for community building and a status update on the ESTEME@OSU project at our upcoming F3+: Food, Faculty, and Fun (+) event! This event is open to both current and interested participants. Food, drink, and semi-structured activities will be provided.
Join us on Wednesday, Dec. 10th from 3:00-5:00 pm in Milam 215, when we will discuss the National Academies’ consensus report on Discipline-based Education Research(NRC 2012) and the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology report on improving undergraduate STEM education, entitledEngage to Excel(PCAST 2012).
On Wednesday, Nov. 19thfrom 3:00- 5:00 pm in Furman 303, we will discuss the Common Guidelines for Education Research and Development (jointly authored by NSF and IES), and the role of the guidelines in guiding the agencies’ investment decisions. This salon might be of interest to everyone who would like to better understand what NSF and IES consider appropriate evidence in education and learning research. Refreshments provided.
