The Association of American Universities (AAU), in partnership with Research Corporation for Science Advancement's (RCSA) Cottrell Scholars Collaborative, released Improving Undergraduate STEM Education at Research Universities: A Collection of Case Studies, a book that details how individual research universities have achieved large-scale transformation of undergraduate STEM education.
The case studies document current and past efforts to improve teaching and learning in STEM fields and are meant to be a resource for department chairs and deans who are contemplating large-scale efforts of their own. The case studies include programs such as the Science Education Initiative at the University of Colorado, Boulder and the University of British Columbia, and the Freshman Research Initiative at The University of Texas at Austin.
