The second topic in the Sloan Consortium (Sloan-C) online research symposia series is open for registration! Registration for STEM Online Education: Energizing the Future is FREE and open to all.
“STEM Online Education: Energizing the Future“
Panel convenes on May 3, 2012, 11:00 — 2:00 ET (recorded for future viewing)
This Research Symposium will discuss research-based solutions to one of the most daunting problems in American higher education – the continued loss of graduates in STEM areas. How do we counter the precipitous drop in STEM enrollments and how does the research being conducted enable STEM online programs to educate the workforce needed in STEM? The theme is understandings and disseminating effective practices that will enable STEM education online to grow and prosper. At the outset the consortium formation chose to examine three specific areas of inquiry: Serious Games online, Laboratory learning online, Faculty Education and Student Interaction for online learning. These target areas were chosen specifically because of the great need to make progress in these areas. The Sloan-C STEM symposium will explore current innovative approaches to teaching STEM courses online. Please join Jim Vanides, HP Office of Global Social Innovation and the Multiversity Consortium panelists about innovative approaches to teaching STEM courses.
