BOSE New Activities

Roundtable on Systemic Change in Undergraduate STEM Education

BOSE is overseeing a new roundtable that will enable leaders from across the STEM policy, research and implementation communities of higher education to collaborate on issues of undergraduate STEM education.  Discussions at the roundtable will explore topics such as policies and practices that can facilitate or impede reform, effective approaches to supporting students' learning and engagement, the needs of faculty members as such efforts move forward, how institutional leaders can encourage and support improvements, and strategies for identifying and generating resources to support reform.
