Discussion on Promising Practices in STEM Education


Abstract

Numerous and varied teaching, learning, assessment, and institutional promising practices in undergraduate STEM education have been developed in recent years – many funded by NSF-- but little is known about their impact. The goal of this proposal is to begin to focus on the evidence of impact for a selected number of such promising practices. To do this the National Research Council (NRC) will facilitate two, one-day workshops which will be overseen by an independent steering committee appointed by the Chairman of the NRC. Each workshop will shed light on the state of knowledge on the selected STEM promising practices as well as suggest areas for additional research or where a major synthesis of existing research is needed. All of the conceptual work described in this proposal will be coordinated with and provide information and guidance to the work of another proposal being sent to NSF by the Wisconsin Center for Education Research (WCER).
