Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE) National Summit: Inspiring the ...

NSF Awards: 1937267

2021 (see original presentation & discussion)

Undergraduate

This video is presented on behalf of the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (AAAS-IUSE) Initiative.

In early 2021, AAAS-IUSE launched an ongoing call for submissions titled Lessons Learned: COVID-19 and Undergraduate STEM Education. This call for submissions was created to collect best practices, developed by IUSE Principal Investigators and other undergraduate STEM education leaders, for addressing challenges presented or exacerbated by COVID. These challenges do not affect all communities the same. Issues of access, equity, and inclusion are critical to broadening participation and developing effective best practices for STEM teaching and learning.

We received over 100 responses from the larger IUSE community identifying issues and innovations that educators are implementing in virtual and hybrid classrooms across the nation. While reviewing submissions, we quickly realized that the community wasn't just creating promising practices for teaching and learning in a pandemic, but was creating strategies that could transform the way we teach STEM forever. This summer we will disseminate these strategies to educators and administrators in higher education.

Our goal with this video is to introduce undergraduate educators to the rich collection of teaching resources that the AAAS-IUSE Initiative offers to broaden participation in STEM using inclusive and excellent practices that improve undergraduate STEM education.

Visit AAAS-IUSE to learn more about innovations, developed by the IUSE community, for addressing challenges related to teaching, learning, diversity, equity, and inclusion in undergraduate STEM education.

    Thanks for the amazing effort to be intentional in the opportunity to learn from what has certainly been an unwanted but real experiment in education over the last 16 months. I deeply appreciate the interest in "crowd sourcing" learning from a broad variety of efforts and agree that there is real potential for such efforts to result in more permanent transformations of how STEM teacher leaders are prepared. 

    As you are advancing this effort, I wonder what it calls up for you in terms of sustainable and at scale approaches to continue sharing learning. What is your effort teaching you about how networks of learners are created and what would you recommend, based on what you are finding, to organizations like the NSF and AAAS with respect to providing increasingly effective, dynamic approaches to supporting college STEM teachers improve their practice? 

    Really appreciate this project!

    Thanks so much for this question Catherine! During the last 16 months we have witnessed creative and innovative approaches and strategies to deal with the delays and disruptions to STEM teaching and learning. Some of the more promising efforts we have seen are the partnerships and collaborations between STEM faculty and industry, non-profits and community organizations who have reached out to support students. Some of these include subsidizing remote learning and teaching and resources, especially for labs that were shut down, and converting research and internships to remote or virtual formats to assist students in staying on track with expertise development. While we have definitely seen some challenges over the last year, we have been able to leverage the virtual environment to create communities of support and expand the opportunities for STEM faculty to share their research and best practices beyond publications and in more real-time formats that are timely regarding addressing student needs. We have seen some rich connections made between STEM faculty and the communities in which they reside which could be expanded and built upon moving forward to better sustain and scale efforts to support and transform undergraduate STEM education.

     Amazing!  Very informative and motivational.  I appreciated that the program is for undergraduate STEM education and students enrolled in those programs, but I wonder if the resources that have been developed have been publicized for high school teachers that may find use for them as well?  I am suspecting that many of the resources could be used to help high school teachers broaden that pipeline to STEM fields through similar strategies.

    I am also curious as to how many institutions beyond the three highlighted in this program are participating in the program as well.   Thanks again.

    Thanks for your kind words and interest in high school teachers applying these learnings, Christine! Our recently launched AAAS-IUSE community (for which we would be happy for Showcase visitors to join and contribute expertise) includes over 6,000 subscribers – NSF Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE) Principal Investigators and project teams, as well as broader stakeholders engaged and/or interested in undergraduate STEM education.

    As mentioned in the video when we put out a call to these experts around sharing promising practices for how they have adapted their practice to the challenges of teaching and learning during COVID-19, over 100 responses flooded in going beyond creating best practices for teaching in a pandemic and instead developing evergreen strategies with implications for broadening participation, increasing accessibility, and transforming the way we teach STEM!

    Check out our new, publicly available resource Lessons Learned During COVID-19: Strategies Transforming the Future of Education, which currently contains more information and specific recommendations for educators (many of which could be adapted by high school teachers) from the remarkable IUSE Principal Investigators featured in our video.

    So far our collection includes strategies for:
    course design,
    student engagement, and
    online labs.

    Stay tuned as we debut more Lessons Learned strategies in the coming months to share many of the inspirational and transformative submissions received – including some from teacher educators around adapting clinical practice.

    This is a great video and motivator to visit the IUSE website for other practices! I keep hearing people talk about "getting back to normal" when, I believe, there is a new normal that is a more 21st century pedagogy that will increase diversity and belongingness in STEM. Thanks for the video!

    Thanks for the kind feedback, Howard! There are so many opportunities to learn from this period of disruption to improve the way we teach and learn STEM. I agree that we should be headed towards a "new normal" built on lessons we've learned to make STEM education a more diverse and inclusive space. I keep thinking about this piece where Dr. Stephanie August wrote about taking this moment to envision a brighter future for STEM, and then making it a reality: How Disruption Allows Us to Reimagine Convergent STEM Ecosystems.

    Thanks again for your comments!

    Hello,

    The STEM Leaders Program (SLP) at OSU was previously funded in 2014 through an NSF IUSE # 1432810. In 2019, the SLP successfully transitioned from grant to university funding through a collaborative partnership between the Colleges of Agricultural Sciences, Engineering, and Science, and the Office of Undergraduate Education. To date, almost four hundred students have completed our program.

    During these challenging times, we listened to our students and stakeholders to address the needs that are important to them—in this case, launching and adding to our on-going program, the STEM Buddies initiative. We appreciate the leadership of our SLP Program Coordinator, Stephanie Ramos, and the work of our student program assistants in making this possible. We hope you enjoy our contribution, and we look forward to supporting current and future STEM Leader students.

    You can find more about our program here: https://stemleaders.oregonstate.edu/

    We've learned so much from this past year and we look forward to reviewing and continuously improving the STEM Buddies system for our upcoming cohort of students. I am inspired by all the great work we as educators across the country have done to adapt to all the changes that come our way. We have more to do, but this year gave us the opportunity to try and learn how we can continuously support our students. Please let us know if you have any questions or want to talk about the STEM Leaders Program at Oregon State University.
