Roosevelt University is hosting a conference - Innovation and Collaboration in STEM Education, a SENCER Center of Innovation-Midwest Regional Meeting - on April 5 at the Schaumburg Campus. The conference is open to high school, college, and university science educators. A special student rate is available.
Attendees will learn about the goals of the SENCER project and current trends in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education reform. Guests will share examples and updates on practices that enhance civic engagement, student learning, and faculty development. The conference includes breakout sessions focused on general biology teaching, K-16 connections, and “Engaging Science,” a new initiative from SCI-Midwest that focuses on teaching modules in general biology with a civic engagement component.
SENCER (Science Education for New Civic Engagement and Responsibilities) is a national community of transformation that supports innovative pedagogies to enhance student learning in STEM.
Registration is required by April 1. For more information, contact the SCI-Midwest co-director, Prof. Robert Seiser.
