Research-University-based Centers of STEM Education: Fad, Fictions, Failures and Fulfillment
Tuesday, October 9, 2012 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
The Center for Research on Lifelong STEM Learning Presents the 2012-2013 Lifelong STEM Learning Seminar and Forum series on the second Tuesdays. Dr. Bouwma-Gearhart will kick-off the series and 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. More info at http://stem.science.oregonstate.edu/Events including url for streaming and broadcast locations.
