New Guide on Undergraduate STEM Education

June 2, 2017

The Association of American Universities, which works, in part, to improve math, science, engineering and technology education for undergraduates, this week released a report on “Essential Questions and Data Sources for Continuous Improvement of Undergraduate STEM Teaching and Learning.” It includes questions to aid faculty discussions on STEM education at the course, department, division and campus level on pedagogy, scaffolding and cultural change. There are key data sources and other tools to guide institutional decisions, along with information on evaluating quality and effectiveness of instruction.

Mary Sue Coleman, association president, in statement called the report a “useful resource for research universities as they continue to work at improving the effectiveness of undergraduate STEM teaching and learning.” The new document complements AAU’s earlier “Framework for Systemic Change in Undergraduate STEM Teaching and Learning.”
