From Research to Action: Improving Undergraduate STEM Education
Updated by Janaina on April 16, 11:00am

 

A presentation and discussion with Susan Rundell Singer (Director, NSF Division of Undergraduate Education)

Monday, April 21, 2014

12:00-1:00 PM

1111 Genetics/Biotechnology Center

 

Our success in preparing a globally competitive workforce and a scientifically literate populace depends on rethinking learning at the college level. Collectively, we know a lot about what works, but how do we take the research and bridge the gap to make real changes, in the classroom and beyond? What strategies can we use? The National Science Foundation (and the federal government more broadly) is making key commitments to really “move the needle” on undergraduate education. Come hear about recent investments to support the integration, description, and measuring of evidence-­‐based teaching practices, as well as a number of recent and forthcoming resources that may be useful to you.

Offered through the Institute for Biology Education at UW-Madison. For more information, contact: Lilian Tong (tong@wisc.edu) or Kristin Jenkins (kpjenkins@wisc.edu)
