Teaching Space Science: A STEM Transformation Vehicle That Really Works
  Location: Hixson-Lied Auditorium - Harper Center
  Date: Tuesday, Aug.2
  Time: 10:30 AM -12:15 PM
  Author: Edward Prather,

  Abstract: From assembly line worker to tenured faculty member, a struggle and journey that has made me hungry to help. Over the past decade I have worked closely with hundreds of college instructors, postdocs, graduate students, and undergrads in collaborative projects designed to understand issues of teaching and learning in college-level general education space science courses. The research results from these collaborations have been used to transform classrooms all over the country. We are creating learning environments that can significantly impact learners' science literacy and engagement in STEM for the 250,000 students that take these courses each year. By moving students along the continuum from non-science major, to peer instructor, to degree seeking student, we are creating the next generation's Ambassadors of Science.
