Research-University-based Centers of STEM Education: Fad, Fictions, Failures and Fulfillment (or, why would anyone want to get involved with this?!)

Lifelong STEM Learning Campus-wide Seminar Series and Discussion Forum 2012-2013

Tuesday, October 9, 2012 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Dr. Bouwma-Gearhart will help situate the Center for Research on Lifelong STEM Learning  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.  Contact Julie.Risien@oregonstate.edu for more information or to be added to the Center for Research on Lifelong STEM Learning listserv.
