Cultivating a STEM-Ready Society

Learn why our nation’s future success depends on building a globally competitive, diverse STEM workforce
STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics in an interdisciplinary and applied approach—teaching these subjects together instead of separately.  The complex problems we face in the 21st century revolve around STEM-related issues. Resolving them will require enhanced research as well as a STEM-educated workforce and a STEM-knowledgeable public.  Join us for a lively discussion with Dr. Storksdieck, Director of the Center for Research on Lifelong STEM Learning. He was the former Director of the Board on Science Education at the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences prior to coming to OSU in June.

This event is hosted by the College of Science and the College of Education

Friday October 31st 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.OSU Memorial Union, Horizon Room refreshements provided.

People Matter: The Role of Affect and Relationship in Student Engagement

Join us as we hear from Dr. Denise Wilson on the importance of relationships and belonging to student engagement. 

As one of the first points of entry for students in the academic world, faculty can become some of the most influential figures in a student’s college experience. In the larger picture of student engagement faculty can also play pivotal roles in a student’s sense of belonging within their academic communities. Dr. Denise Wilson, Associate Professor of Engineering Education at University of Washington, and her team have spent five years exploring the role of student belonging on academic engagement at five diverse institutions across the country. Join us as we hear about the important roles that student-faculty and peer relationships can play in both the undergraduate and post-graduate experience. 

This event is hosted by the College of Engineering and the Center for Research on Lifelong STEM Learning.
