On February 28, STELAR hosted authors of three papers featured in our recent ITEST special issue published in the Journal of Science Education and Technology (JOST).
Join us for the NSF 2015 Teaching and Learning Video Showcase: Improving Science, Math, Engineering, and Computer Science Education! This online showcase will include brief videos of cutting-edge NSF-funded work to improve teaching and learning.
During this webinar we heard from ITEST projects that are developing innovative program models to successfully recruit, retain, and engage youth from underrepresented communities in authentic STEM learning experiences.
In May 2015, seventeen ITEST projects presented videos in the 2015 National Science Foundation Teaching and Learning Video Showcase. Organized by TERC, the showcase contained 112 videos produced by NSF-funded projects associated with one of these resource centers: ARC, CADRE, CAISE, CIRCL,
ITEST project presentations at conferences around the country during Spring and Summer 2015 are included in these handouts for your reference.
