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.
|Design, Selection, and Implementation of Instructional Materials for the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)|
This publication from the Board on Science Education summarizes a workshop held in June 2017 that focused on the development of instructional materials that reflect the principles of the Framework for K-12 Science Education (2012) and the Next Generation Science Standards (2013) (NGSS). The workshop brought together experts involved with developing tools for selection and design of instructional materials as well as curriculum developers and researchers who are designing materials aligned with NGSS.
|Indicators for Monitoring Undergraduate STEM Education|
This report identifies a set of national-level indicators to measure the status and quality of undergraduate STEM education over multiple years. The report also identifies types of data that will need to be collected in order to put the indicators to use, along with possible strategies to gather this data.
|Graduate Training in the Social and Behavioral Sciences|
This publication from the Board on Science Education summarizes a workshop held in June 2017 on graduate training in the social and behavioral sciences. The workshop focused on how education in these areas could move toward a more multidisciplinary approach that meets ever changing workforce trends.
Seeing Students Learn Science: Integrating Assessment and Instruction in the Classroom
This new report highlights ways to improve understanding of how students learn science and guide the adaptation of their instruction and approach to assessment. It is meant to help educators improve their understanding of how students learn science and guide the adaptation of their instruction and approach to assessment.
|Undergraduate Research Experiences for STEM Students: Successes, Challenges, and Opportunities|
This report from the Board on Science Education provides a comprehensive overview of and insights about the current and rapidly evolving types of undergraduate research experiences in terms of their content, their surrounding context, the diversity of the student participants, and the opportunities for learning provided by a research experience.
