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, entitled Engage to Excel (PCAST 2012). We will be reviewing these two reports on what they suggest about evidence-based practices for improved STEM education at the undergraduate level, and use the policy recommendations from both reports to reflect on the current political climate around STEM education reform. Refreshments provided.
