Dr. Bouwma-Gearhart will help us situate our new Center in the greater national movement attempting to improve STEM education. Drawing on her and others’ research and our collective experiences, we will explore the (1) trend of university-based centers of STEM education, including the motivations and missions of organizations pushing their creation, and (2) the associated perils confronted and promises afforded at major research universities like our own. Come and join a lively discussion of why and how you might meaningfully engage in the Center’s activities in ways synergistic with your other professional and personal goals. View this seminar
