SENCER Workshop Planned at Auburn University

As part of Research Week 2013, we will be hosting a day long session for students, faculty and staff on the approach, strategies, and resources developed by SENCER on April 4, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. at The Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center. The session will be led by Robert Holm (pictured), Assistant Director, Office of Sponsored Programs, Edward Katz and Keith Krumpe of the University of North Carolina, Asheville, and David Burns.

Attendees will learn how with support from the National Science Foundation and in collaboration with hundreds of educators, academic leaders, students, and experts in assessment and cognitive theory, SENCER has established a community of practice for improving learning in science, mathematics, and across the curriculum. Attendees will be encouraged to participate in discussions facilitated by the co-founder of SENCER and faculty from the southeast who have participated in the SENCER project and created courses and larger-scale curricular projects that connect science and mathematics learning to real-world challenges.
