Numerous surveys and reports have documented that far too many college students either fail or become bored with science and technology courses, abandoning plans to major in STEM fields.
On Wednesday, March 13 at 2 p.m. EST, Inside Higher Ed presents STEM Teaching Methods That Work, a webinar featuring Steve Benton, senior research officer at the IDEA Center. Steve will explore the relationship between teaching methods and learning objectives in STEM education. The idea behind this analysis is that the right approach to learning objectives and teaching methods could lead to meaningful improvements in STEM education.
Among the topics to be covered:
The webinar will consist of a 30-minute presentation and a 30-minute question period. There is no conference call required for this event— the entire presentation, including audio, is delivered via the web. Your registration entitles you to one connection to the event—you may gather as many colleagues as you like to view the presentation via one monitor, but only one connection per registration will be allowed. This event will be captioned for the deaf and hard of hearing by StreamText Access.
