SENCER Seeks Participants for NSF Assessment Project part of Newsletter Articles
Will you be teaching a course that covers topics in chemistry, physics, or biology this upcoming fall semester? Are you looking for ways to show that your course is working and effective? Would you like to feel confident that students retain what they learn in your course long after they leave your classroom? If so, we'd love for you to join our assessment project. We are partnering with the College Board to combine their field-tested AP science questions with our well-established SALG student survey to measure the Enduring Understandings of SENCER courses, a goal of our current grant from the National Science Foundation.
NCSCE Grants 15 Implementation Awards to Support Projects that Advance Education and Civic Engagement part of Newsletter Articles
The National Center for Science & Civic Engagement is awarding fifteen SENCER Summer Institute 2015 Post-Institute Implementation Awards that promote education reform at the course, campus, and regional level, connect STEM to humanities disciplines such as music, literacy, and the classics, and engage students in content and the community. The awards sponsor projects that bridge the gaps between disciplines, restructure and revitalize standard laboratory courses, and extend the SENCER Ideals to K-12 educators and pre-service teachers. Project themes include sustainability, geosciences, public health, systems thinking, and media outreach. We are also pleased to note that this year's awarded projects are all led by women, a traditionally underrepresented population among STEM educators and professionals.
