We are excited to invite you to the spring 2017 Regional Meeting of the SENCER Center of Innovation South with the theme of Developing Professionals, at Lipscomb University. SENCER SCI-South hopes you will join us to learn about regional innovative research in STEM Education. Topics include undergraduate STEM education for majors and non-majors, assessment of teaching and learning, informal science education, as well as pre-kindergarten through 12th grade STEM education.
The SENCER Center of Innovation - South is also soliciting short papers and posters for 20 minute presentations at its Spring 2017 Regional Meeting. Our theme, Developing Professionals, is intentionally inclusive - embracing SENCER-style STEM education for college science majors; the non-major; and the scientist to be, our K-12 students. Submissions should present projects or curriculum design aimed at expanding student interest in STEM learning, through an exploration of the connection between science and its civic or social impact. Our particular interest is to facilitate our colleagues’ creativity and exploration of such projects on their own campuses, through encounters with your model and experiences, particularly through the lessons you have learned in doing this important work.
